Bang on a Can and MASS MoCA present LOUD Weekend 2020!
July 31-Aug 2
Come join us for the second LOUD Weekend, featuring more than 30 performances by more than 100 musicians of the works of dozens of composers who will coverge to create an eclectic supermix of music in spaces in and around MASS MoCA. This year our special guests are the legendary Kronos Quartet, whose career spans 9 presidents and more than 1,000 commissions for string quartet. Bang on a Can owes its spirit and entrepreneurial vision to David Harrington and company, and can't wait to team up in the Berkshires for three days of concerts and shenanigans.
And we're super proud to present Nathalie Joachim and her brilliant Fanm d’Ayiti. Plus a major new work from Michael Gordon called Field of Vision for forty (40!) percussionists. Plus you can count on our Bang on a Can All-Stars to hit a few out of the park as well, individually and as a team.
The rest of the program will be announced in the spring.
