Julia Wolfe: Anthracite Fields, Bang on a Can All-Stars, Cappella SF

Luminaries of the new music world, the chamber ensemble Bang on a Can All-Stars joins with Cappella SF for a performance of founding member Julia Wolfe's Pulitzer Prize-winning Anthracite Fields. The poignant oratorio weaves together oral histories, personal interviews, speeches, and local lore with electro-acoustic chamber music to tell the stories of Pennsylvania coal miners and their families at the turn of the 20th century.
