I/O New Music

I/O Festival of New Music – Opening Concert

I/O Fest is the Williams College Department of Music’s annual immersion in the music of today. Over the course of three days and nights students, faculty, guest performers, and audiences delve deeply into new and adventurous music from around the world and around the corner. Performances take full advantage of the ’62 Center for Theatre and Dance, making use of its technical capabilities and unconventional spaces. Featuring guest ensemble loadbang, and performances by the I/O Ensemble, IOTA, and many others, I/O invites listeners to explore the music of now.
