    Bang on a Can Marathon

    Bang on a Can brings its signature event back to the Berkshires! 30+ musicians and composers from around the world team up for 6-hours on non-stop, boundary smashing music. Highlights to include George Antheil’s futuristic classic Ballet Me?anique in which the "ballet" is not a show of human dancers but of mechanical instruments -- player pianos, airplane propellers, and electric bells and more, John Adams’ riveting Shaker Loops, a four-part piece for seven solo strings in which each instrument is assigned a "loop" of melodic material which, when heard together, results in constantly shifting play; and 2008 Pulitzer Prize winner David Lang’s Pierced, a rhythmic smorgasbord that seems to pull from jazz, rock, and dub-step realms all at once, and much more!This project has been made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts as part of American Masterpieces: Three Centuries of Artistic Genius. Galleries open until 8 PM.
