Each year we throw an awesome party, with lots of music and food and drink and friends new and old. In one big night, we try to raise money to cover the hard-to-find funds that keep our doors open. And each year since 2005, we've honored someone with the Bang on a Can "Visionary Award." It's a way to say thank you to the brightest lights in the new music universe. And this year is no exception.
JEREMY GEFFEN is central to the musical imagination of Carnegie Hall, which is central to the musical imagination of the world.
In his years as Director of Artistic Planning, as part of a team of dedicated musical programmers, Jeremy has helped Carnegie Hall redouble its connections to the musical life of the city, including a passionate commitment to music being written right now. The breadth of his vision and the kindness of his spirit have made Jeremy everyone’s friend, not just Bang on a Can’s. Please join us as we recognize Jeremy with the 2015 Bang on a Can Visionary Award!
