Czech avant-garde violinist, singer, and composer Iva Bittová continues her 2022 CAST Distinguished Visiting Artist residency with a performance celebrating the power and urgency of coming together in song to create hope and nourish our selves and our planet.

This performance explores collaboration, tradition, and improvisation through the music of Luciano Berio, Czech and Slovak traditions, and Bittová's own compositions.

She is joined by MIT's Vocal Jazz Ensemble directed by Laura Grill Jaye; clarinetist, professor of music, and Faculty Director of Center for Art, Science & Technology (CAST) Evan Ziporyn; and a chamber ensemble of Boston-based professional musicians. Bittová's residency continues her creative collaboration with MIT begun in 2013.

This concert was rescheduled from its original date of February 25, 2022, cancelled due to inclement weather.
