Program #2011

Bang On a Can's annual People’s Commissioning Fund concerts are among the livelier showcases of new American music to take place in New York every season. The concept is simple: the organization selects a handful of composers to write works for its house band to be performed in a free concert in New York. The results are often spirited: the 2001 program featured Sussan Deyhim, whose music is informed by her own Iranian heritage as well as by the American experimental tradition; James Fei, whose works are joyful, noisy, and utterly urban; as well as works by Jeffrey Brooks and Keeril Makan.
