An intimate evening of music ranging from baroque to post-minimalism features the New York Premiere of a work by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Julia Wolfe, commissioned through BAC’s inaugural Cage Cunningham Fellowship. The eclectic program also includes solo works by Telemann and Suzanne Farrin, and Prokofiev’s playful score inspired by circus life, a masterwork of modernism.

Bang on a Can at the Jewish Museum - Kaki King

Saturday, October 7, 2017 to Sunday, October 8, 2017

We call it Road Trip. The tank is full, the top is down, and we have our collective hand on the dial for a euphoric musical journey celebrating 30 years of Bang on a Can. Michael GordonDavid Lang, and Julia Wolfe flood the waves with an original mash-up of wind-in-your-hair tunes that capture the sublime exhilaration of freedom and possibility. Performed by the Bang on a Can All-Stars, with stunning scenic design by projection artist CandyStations (Sufjan Stevens, St. Vincent) and stage direction by Michael Counts, "Road Trip" is a tribute to journeys of all sorts, and the people who make them. There is a road, but it is no simple highway.
