Artists at Noguchi | Bang on a Can Music Series: Miles Okazaki

Sunday, June 9, 2019 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm

Kicking off the ninth season of the Artists at Noguchi | Bang on a Can music series, Miles Okazaki performs Work: the compositions of Thelonious Monk for solo guitar.

 

Okazaki is a New York–based guitarist originally from Port Townsend, Washington. His approach to the guitar is described by the New York Times as “utterly contemporary, free from the expectations of what it means to play a guitar in a group setting — not just in jazz, but any kind.” An artist on the Pi Recordings label, Okazaki has released four albums of original compositions over the last twelve years, as well as a six-album recording of the complete compositions of Thelonious Monk for solo guitar.

 

Presented in partnership with Bang on a Can, this innovative performance series is held in the Museum's outdoor sculpture garden. In case of rain or artist's preference, concerts take place in the galleries.

 

Performances are free with Museum admission, and seating is available on garden benches and floor mats on a first-come, first-served basis.
