This summer for the fourth year, The Noguchi Museum partners once again with Bang on a Can to present an innovative performance series held in the Museum's celebrated sculpture garden.
On July 13, Music in the Garden will present a concert specially curated by Bang on Can including music by contemporary Japanese composers Michio Kitazume, Dai Fujikura, Kazuo Fukushima, and Toru Takemitsu. The music will be performed by flutists Kelli Kathmann and Jessica Schmitz, vocalist Daisy Press, and percussionist Carson Moody.
Bang on a Can is dedicated to making music new. Since its first Marathon concert in 1987, Bang on a Can has been creating an international community dedicated to innovative music, wherever it is found. With adventurous programs, it commissions new composers; performs, presents, and records new work; develops new audiences; and educates the musicians of the future. Bang on a Can is building a world in which powerful new musical ideas flow freely across all genres and borders. For more information, visit www.bangonacan.org
