In addition to taking video clips of the Bang on a Can Summer Music Festival gallery recitals, we’ve been diligently taking photos as well! Below are a few of our favorites, but you can see all the photos on our Bang on a Can Flickr Group.
Can’t get enough Bang? Don’t fret, you have a few more chances to see the faculty and fellows perform before they leave North Adams. See them tomorrow from 7:30 to 8:30 at DownStreet Art in North Adams, there are three more days of gallery recitals, and if you really want to rock your socks off join us for the Bang on a Can Marathon on Saturday, August 1,¬† for six hours of music!
We just posted a half dozen videos of the Bang on a Can recitals on youtube and will get more up soon.¬† The recitals have been incredible — raucous and exciting and hushed and transcendent and everything in between. There are just four more days left to enjoy music in the galleries every day at 1:30 and 4:30.¬† Please stop by!
We have had so much going on in the museum the past week that we have barely been able to capture it all. You can of course check it all out at our YouTube page, and while we are on the subject I will take just a moment to mention that we have shot up the charts to the #10 most viewed non profit page of the day, #31 of the week, and #80 of the month. Thanks for all your video viewing! Since I haven’t posted my daily recap videos in awhile I thought I would overload your senses and put all the videos up at once.
