Call and Response: Creativity at MIT
Created September 30, 2016 - 9:15pm

MIT Music and Theatre Arts commissioned multiple Grammy nominee and Guggenheim and MacArthur fellow Miguel Zenón to write a piece for the MIT Wind Ensemble.  Jazz composer and saxophonist Zenón found inspiration in the socially conscious work of the student performers.  The creative collaboration culminated in four movements entitled: Properties, Humanity, Syntax and Service.  The title of the piece “Music as Service” encapsulates the experience for the performers of this brand new composition.
