Here's the schedule! (set times are approximate)
Jeffrey Brooks is an outstanding composer. We've know that since we met him in the mid 1980's! Despite heatlh setbacks that would have ended most careers, he's continued to make music that defies convention and touches us deeply.
This summer, we are launching a workshop for for music critics and journalists! Bang on a Can, our special guest faculty, John Schaefer (of WNYC's New Sounds), and 4 writers in the early stages of their careers will gather at MASS MoCA (the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, North Adams, MA) to explore the role of criticism and journalism in today's dynamic contemporary music scene. Our aim is to help writers generate a vocabulary, syntax, and context that is most useful for readers/ listeners and to make modern music and criticism more accessible, welcoming, and exciting to all audiences.
Deadline to apply is April 25.
