As part of the New York River to River Festival, violinist Monica Germino, based in Amsterdam, is coming to New York to perform as part of the Bang on a Can Marathon, in the US premiere of Julia Wolfe’s piece, With a blue dress on. The Bang on a Can Marathon is a new music extravaganza, which has become an annual, not-to-be-missed event in New York and beyond since it was first held in 1987.
Bang on a Can returns to lower Manhattan’s River to River Festival with its annual incomparable super-mix of boundary-busting music from around the corner and around the globe.The 2013 Bang on a Can Marathon will feature 9 hours of rare performances by some of the most innovative pioneering musicians of our time side-by-side with some of today’s newest exciting young artists.CGNY
