Since it was first launched in 1987 by composers David Lang, Julia Wolfe and Michael Gordon, The Bang on a Can Marathon has been the centerpiece of programs and initiatives to support new music making and introduce audiences to new music. This year, even with musicians shut in at home across the globe, the usually New York based marathon will go on - virtually - on May 3 from 3 pm to 6 pm ET. Lang explains the importance of the event - then and now.

Rachel Katz is the host of A Tempo which airs Saturdays at 7 pm.
