Bang on a Can Needs You

With big, big thanks for all your support of the music through the years, we once again turn to you for help to make it all happen. Since we last did so, we've toured all over the world, commissioned more than a dozen new works, staged Marathons, programmed more than 50 concerts, produced programs for major museums, recorded and/or released a dozen new records, hosted 30 international musicians touring the West Coast, broadcast concerts, and shared videos and recordings of our performances as widely as is digitally possible.

With so much going on, it's hard to single out one thing that we do. But we'd definitely like to highlight one program that is incredibly meaningful to us - The Bang on a Can Summer Festival at MASS MoCA. It may just be the best thing we've done for the future of the music we champion. We need your support for "Banglewood" to survive, thrive, and remain within reach for struggling young players and composers.
