Kick off the new year with I/O Fest, the Williams College Department of Music’s annual expedition into the music of today. Over the course of four days and nights, performers and audiences take an immersive tour through a world of new sounds and adventurous music. With a focus on cutting edge composition and unconventional modes of performance I/O Fest invites listeners to experience music in new ways. Performances, talks, and workshops are held in the ’62 Center for Theatre & Dance and The Clark Art Institute. I/O Fest 2019 features guest ensemble Bearthoven presenting their program American Dream, music by composer-in-residence Sato Matsui, and performances by the I/O Ensemble, IOTA, the Axxea Quartet, and an array of Williams faculty, students, alumni, and guests.
