Bang on a Can turned 20 this year. Marking the occasion it mounted its most audacious offering to date: scheduling a 26-hour marathon from Saturday night at 8 to Sunday night at 10. The performance was staged at the Winter Garden of the World Financial Center, a co-production with the primarily pop-oriented River to River Festival and arts>World Financial Center.........By Sunday morning the schedule had slipped by nearly an hour; even with one piece omitted near the end, the event ultimately clocked in at 27 hours 10 minutes.
