Tonight marks the debut of Bang on a Can’s latest conceit, a choreographed 12-piece marching band. John Philip Sousa’s greatest hits are conspicuously absent from a repertory of world-premiere commissions by Goran Bregovic, Tyondai Braxton (of Battles), and Stew and Heidi Rodewald, as well as new arrangements of hits by Bjork, Charles Mingus, Conlon Nancarrow, and Frank Zappa. The orchestra will perform at various Lincoln Center sites through August 9.
