The Art in Public Spaces Symposium continues on March 3 at 1 p.m. as David Lang, composer and co-founder/co-artistic director of the Bang on the Can Festival, discusses his experiences as a composer and how today's society has shaped his artistic process. The discussion, which will be held in Krannert CenterÕs Krannert Room, also will consider the place of new music in the broader context of the arts scene and how this relates to music's traditions and history.
Lang also will lead a pre-performance discussion at 7 p.m. in Krannert CenterÕs choral rehearsal room prior to an 8 p.m. concert by the Bang on a Can All-Stars in the Tryon Festival Theater.
