John Cage’s Musicircus

In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of John Cage’s Musicircus, first mounted in the Livestock Pavilion at the University of Illinois in 1967, the John Cage Trust joins with musicians from the Bard College Conservatory of Music and its extended community for a celebratory performance of this historically significant and gloriously anarchic work. Befitting a circus, Musicircus features chance-determined performances by more than 40 musicians—often simultaneous, always surprising—both inside and outdoors. A family-friendly, free event to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Cage’s death and his ongoing legacy.
