Bang on a Can & Season Highlights

Bang on a Can's Summer Music Festival focuses on new and adventurous contemporary music. For three weeks each summer, performers and composers alike head to the industrial heart of the Berkshires collaborate on, create and perform new music pieces. This year's festival included classes in improvisation techniques, an Orchestra of Original Instruments by Mark Stewart and an African dancing and drumming rhythm seminar by Nani Agbeli. Guest faculty over the years has included Steve Reich, Louis Andriessen and Meredith Monk.  Learn more here: http://bangonacan.org/

We hope you enjoy this unique show which includes various season highlights from the 2012 season of America's Music Festivals. In addition to the incredible music of Bang on a Can, this show mixes some old music with the new - with beautiful pieces from a Chamber Music Cruise run by Travel Dynamics International. Other highlights from the season include a broadcast of the first movement of the Tchaikovsky Piano Trio in A Minor from Music in the Vineyards in Napa Valley, Susan Graham singing "Ombra Mai Fu" from Eastern Music Festival, and Time for Three playing Ranaan Meyer's Of Time and Three Rivers at Indiana University's Summer Music Festival. Enjoy!
