Artists at Noguchi | Bang on a Can Music Series with Theo Bleckmann
Sunday, June 12, 2016 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm

For the sixth year in a row, The Noguchi Museum partners with Bang on a Can to present an innovative performance series held in the Museum's outdoor sculpture garden. (In case of rain, concerts will take place in the galleries.) Performances are free with Museum admission, and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.

 

Opening this summer’s series of concerts, jazz singer and composer Theo Bleckmann makes music that is accessibly sophisticated, unsentimentally emotional, and seriously playful. His work has been described as “from another planet” (The New York Times), “magical, futuristic” (AllAboutJazz), “transcendent” (Village Voice), and “brilliant” (New York magazine). The program will include Bleckmann as a vocalist in his own songs for voice, toys, electronic processing, and piano. www.theobleckmann.com
