Tonight, before the big LOUD Weekend, come to The Chalet for a live kareoke beyond your weirdest, wildest dreams. 10PM to Whenever...

As 75 Dollar Bill, plywood crate percussionist Rick Brown and guitarist Che Chen make electric, richly patterned music that can shape shift from joyful dance tunes to slowly changing trance minimalism - an uncategorizable hybrid which draws on early electric blues, the modal traditions of West Africa, India and the Middle East, Sun Ra’s space chords and the minimalist and No Wave histories of their home town. 

For this event the group will present a special set of material conceived with the unique environs of the Noguchi Museum in mind. The event is free with museum admission.

The Young People’s Chorus of New York City (YPC), founded and directed by Francisco J. Núñez, perform a concert that will include songs and poems by Leonard Cohen and others, coinciding with the Jewish Museum exhibition, “Leonard Cohen: A Crack in Everything.” Recognized throughout New York City and internationally as one of the leading and most diverse children’s choirs, YPC is a longtime and frequent collaborator with Bang on a Can, and has forged a unique presence in the city’s music community both as a champion commissioner and performer of new works by today’s leading composers and for its innovative vocal arrangements that consistently cross all musical borders.

Steven Bernstein's Sexmob performs on the Museum Mile, New York City’s biggest block party! It's free!
Now celebrating its 20th year, Sexmob (Steven Bernstein - slide trumpet, Briggan Krauss - saxophones, Tony Scherr - bass, Kenny Wollesen - drums) continues to deconstruct familiar pop tunes with subversive impunity. Music by Prince, John Barry, the Grateful Dead, Nirvana, the Rolling Stones, Buffalo Springfield, Paul McCartney, and ABBA is fair game for this band of musical renegades.

We're launching our season at the Noguchi Museum!
First up, Miles Okazaki performs Work: the compositions of Thelonious Monk for solo guitar. Miles Okazaki was armed only with his solo guitar when he recorded all 70 known compositions by Thelonious Monk. It’s an undertaking of such ambition, even Monk never got there. Okazaki speaks of the work in visual, special terms – “It’s like a crystal…it’s got all these angles inside of it…It’s three-dimensional…And it’s African rhythmically.”

June 9, 3pm, Free.

Bang on a Can joins Doug Varone and Dancers for: "in the shelter of the fold / epilogue"
In an intricately woven tapestry of sound, shape, momentum, and stillness, choreographer Doug Varone and his 13-member ensemble contemplate our private and public relationship to faith. in the shelter of the fold / epilogue comprises six interconnected vignettes, featuring original music by Lesley Flanigan, Julia Wolfe, David Lang, Raz Mesinai, and Kevin Keller, masterfully interpreted by Flanigan, PUBLIQuartet, and the Bang on a Can All-Stars. Drawing upon Varone’s own personal questions about prayer as both a spiritual and secular dialogue, this episodic work digs deep to ask how and why we find shelter in the unknown.

4 shows, June 5, 6, 7, 8 at 7:30pm
