Bang on a Can All-Stars make their annual return to Merkin for the 2008 People's Commissioning Fund concert. Three world premieres commissioned by the people! The All-Stars premiere work by two inventive New York composers Tristan Perich and Ken Thomson and Turkish electroacoustic composer Erdem Helvaciaglu; then welcome avant-gypsy-folk singer-violinist Iva Bittová from the Czech Republic for a rare NY performance of their riveting live collaboration.

This annual concert at Merkin has become a mob scene in recent years and we enourage you to get your tickets early! Purchase tickets here. With a palette as wide-ranging as audio-sculpture, electronica, punk-jazz-fusion, eastern European experimental folk and more set upon the virtuoso musicians of Bang on a Can, this promises to be a super special concert. The PCF is a radical partnership between artists and audiences to commission works from adventurous composers. More info at our site.
