People Commissioning People
Here’s another great way that composers and musicians are linking directly to listeners through the web.
The People’s Commissioning Fund is simple; we bundle together hundreds of individual contributions of all sizes. We select three or more new composers to write pieces for the phenomenal Bang on a Can All-Stars. All members of the Fund are then invited to join us in the intimate setting of an open rehearsal to get a sneak preview of the premiere of these works and enjoy a glass of wine with the artists.
Since the Fund started seven years ago, aficionados of new music have commissioned twenty new pieces of music.
