Applications for the 2016 Bang on a Can Summer Music Festival at MASS MoCA are online now, due January 14!

From July 11 – July 30, 2016 we will head to the Berkshire mountains of MA for a three-week utopian residency for innovative composers and performers of contemporary music at one of the foremost US contemporary art museums, MASS MoCA (Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art).

The Festival includes daily recitals in the galleries (1:30pm M-F; 4:30 M-Sat.), daily rehearsals and composition seminars on topics including the business of music and technology; special guest artists; concerts in the community; and the festival finale — the “Marathon” — a six-hour musical celebration.
