From February 23-27, we head to Moscow for the Bang on a Can Music Institute hosted by the National Center for Contemporary Arts (NCCA), a five-day residency bringing together eleven performers from across Russia for a program emphasizing musical collaboration through workshops, seminars, and performances featuring the young Russian musicians playing side-by-side with the Bang on a Can All-Stars.

The Bang on a Can Music Institute in Moscow is a community-building partnership with the U.S. Embassy in Moscow and the NCCA, bringing the creative and cooperative ethos of Bang on a Can's annual Summer Music Festival at MASS MoCA to Moscow. In addition to its immediate value for the participating musicians who will learn from their immersion in contemporary American music from master performers, the Bang on a Can Institute in Moscow offers promise for peaceful engagement, bringing together musicians, composers, and audiences from across borders and around the world to create long-lasting musical friendships.
