About I/O Fest
The I/O Fest is the Williams College Department of Music’s annual immersion in the music of now. Over the course of four days and nights performers and audiences take a deep dive into new and adventurous music from around the world and down the street. Performances, talks, and workshops are held in the ’62 Center for Theatre & Dance and The Clark Art Institute, with a special interest in unconventional spaces and modes of performance. I/O Fest 2018 features composer/performer Kate Soper, in residence for a performance of her landmark chamber opera Here Be Sirens by guest ensemble Fresh Squeezed Opera, and performances by the I/O Ensemble, IOTA, and an array of Williams faculty, students, alumni, and guests.
