PROM 44: BANG ON A CAN ALL-STARS
Thursday 17 August 2017
Doors: 9:45pm
Starts: 10:15pm

Bang on a Can represents all that is most gleefully non-conformist and boundary-breaking in new music.
Celebrating its 30th birthday this year, this pioneering American artistic collective and its three composer-directors, Michael Gordon, David Lang and Julia Wolfe, bring their signature energy to this Late Night Prom, together with their six-piece amplified ensemble.
The All-Stars perform classic works by Wolfe, Lang and Louis Andriessen alongside an 80th-birthday tribute to Philip Glass and a world premiere by Michael Gordon,
performed by the Proms Youth Ensemble. Expect propulsive rhythms and plenty of big grooves.
