Bang on a Can Marathon

Saturday, July 26, 2008, 5:00 pm
Hunter Center

Highlights of this signature event of the Festival will include special guest Terry Riley, music by Frank Zappa, AND and the mixed media oratorio Shelter, a visually stunning collaboration from Michael Gordon, David Lang, Julia Wolfe and with films by Bill Morrison and projections by Laurie Olinder.

30+ musicians and composers of the Bang on a Can Summer Music Festival join for 6-hours of non-stop, boundary smashing music highlighted by rarely performed works of the late-great Frank Zappa. Come and go as you please, grab a drink or a snack, or stroll through the exhibitions -- Galleries open until 8 PM. Hunter Center.

Come early: Lickety Split serves dinner, snacks, and ice cream before the show or visit Café Latino on the MASS MoCA campus. There are also many great restaurants in North Adams that are within walking distance of the campus
