What day could be more appropriate than Mothers’ Day for the mother of all Bang on a Can Marathons.
The free 10-hour multi-genre show kicks off at noon at New York University’s Skirball Center for the Performing Arts.
Featured artists and composers include Bang on a Can founders David Lang, Michael Gordon, and Julia Wolfe, along with one of their mentors, Terry Riley — and, of course, the Bang on a Can All Stars.
But performances aren’t limited to contemporary classical. Singer-songwriter and Magnetic Fields‘ frontman Stephin Merritt is appearing in the first hour of the show, with cellist bandmate Sam Davol, to appeal to the pop audience. Another artist with proven crossover appeal, Brooklyn singer-songwriter Xenia Rubinos, appears later in the day.
If you can’t make it to Skirball, a livestream is scheduled. GO HERE to connect (free registration required to watch).
