Of the nearly 4,000 undergraduates at MIT for the 2012-13 academic year, more than 1,800 are enrolled in a music or theater arts course. The Listening Room is an online collection that showcases the Institute's longstanding engagement with music — featuring music composed and performed by MIT students and by the Institute's internationally renowned Music faculty.
The Listening Room launched with 64 recordings organized in four musical categories — Classical, Jazz, World and Faculty Opus. The collection, which is accompanied by photographs, historical notes and comments from composers, will continue to grow steadily with regular additions of new compositions and performances from MIT's music groups, including the Festival Jazz Ensemble, Wind Ensemble, Chamber Music Society, Galak Tika, Chamber Chorus, Concert Chorus, Rambax, MIT Symphony Orchestra, and soloists from MIT's conservatory-level Emerson Scholars Program.
"The arts at MIT are rooted in experimentation, risk-taking and imaginative problem-solving," says Deborah Fitzgerald, the Kenan Sahin Dean of the MIT School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences. "The Listening Room now opens the doors for a worldwide audience to enjoy the MIT musical experience."
