Bang on a Can presents its annual People’s Commissioning Fund concert, one of the most anticipated and reliable launching pads for composers in New York and beyond, as part of Kaufman Music Center’s Ecstatic Music Festival. This year the Bang on a Can All-Stars will give world premieres by PCF-commissioned composers George Lewis and Angelica Negron. Additionally, the program will raid the archive of PCF commissions and feature The Schmetterling by Pamela Z (with Pamela performing), all the way back from the first annual PCF concert in 1998, plus Vortex (2003) by Annea Lockwood, Glamour Girl (2007) by Lukas Ligeti, and Stroking Piece #1 (2003) by Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore. This concert will be a New Sounds Live co-presentation with host John Schaefer and streamed live at www.newsounds.org.
