'the public domain' at Mostly Mozart Festival

On August 13, The Mostly Mozart Festival at Lincoln Center gives the world premiere of David Lang's the public domain — a performance that not only welcomes the public as a free and open event, but will also be performed by the public. A piece inspired by the theme of the collective knowledge shared amongst us all, the new work is performed by 1,000 volunteer vocalists from throughout New York City, conducted by Simon Halsey, Choral Director of the London Symphony Orchestra.

The Mostly Mozart Festival presentation of the public domain is made possible in part by the generous support of Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund.
