The Big Bang…On A Can

Bang On A Can Marathon took place in The World Financial Center this year with music flowing non-stop for more than 12 hours defying all borders between genres and really making it hard for music lovers to take a break.  Every time a new group emerged on the stage, we got swept away and taken by their ingenuity and brilliance.

The photos show the following performers in the event. I only stayed for 10 hours and took a few walks to stretch my legs!

Slagwerk Den Haag
JACK Quartet
Talea Ensemble
Moritz Eggert
Vernon Reid, Mazz Swift, and Leon Gruenbaum
Mira Calix
Tim Brady

And of course:Bang on a Can All-Stars

Can’t wait for the next Big Bang…On A Can!
