“Music always sounds better with a drink in your hand.” —David Lang

Grab a drink and join David Lang as we dig into this Pulitzer Prize-winning composer’s unique sound world.  Bring your adventurous spirit to our final Encounters of the season, Sunday, June 3at the Gladstone Hotel Melody Bar.

David Lang was the one-time enfant terrible of the new music community, beginning his career as a founding member of the ground-breaking Bang on a Can, (“the country’s most important vehicle for contemporary music,” San Francisco Chronicle) and is still its artistic director. Lang is also one of the mentors for the Soundstreams’ 2018 Emerging Composer Workshop. He joins us, days ahead of the opening of his The Little Match Girl Passion at Crow’s Theatre, for a late afternoon discussion, Q&A and musical interlude.

Adanya Dunn, soprano and Stephanie Chua, keyboard, will be performing various David Lang compositions.
