Listen to this concert:

The Bang on a Can People’s Commissioning Fund (PCF) concert is one of the most anticipated and reliable launching pads for emerging composers in New York and beyond. Founded in 1997, long before crowd-funding became the norm through Kickstarter and the like, Bang on a Can’s PCF has pooled contributions of all sizes from hundreds of friends and fans and since its inception has commissioned over 40 works of music. This year, the Bang on a Can All-Stars will give the world premieres of works by three PCF-commissioned composers: Alvin Lucier, Arcade Fire’s Richard Reed Parry and Daniel Wohl, in addition to a performance of Julia Wolfe’s driving classic from 1994 Lick, and David Lang’s haunting death speaks featuring the Bang on a Can All-Stars with special guest Shara Worden.

Listen to EMF curator Judd Greenstein introduce this year's concerts.
