I/O Out Loud: Family Concert


January 19, 2020

1:00 PM-2:00 PM

Michael Conforti Pavilion

CONSTRUCTION ZONE is a free one-hour performance in which kids and their families help construct a musical world from just a few small sounds. Student and faculty musicians from Williams College lead an interactive performance in which they explore the hidden sounds in everyday objects and uncover the strange and wonderful noises in more familiar instruments. Kids are invited to make their own instruments and create new sounds along with the performers. Open your ears to the sounds all around you, and be prepared to make some noise!

Presented by I/O Fest, Ephs Out Loud, and the Williams College Department of Music.

About I/O Fest

I/O Fest is the Williams College Department of Music’s annual immersion in the music of today. Over the course of four days and nights, students, faculty, guest performers, and audiences delve deeply 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. Featuring renowned guest artists and performances by the I/O Ensemble, IOTA, and many others, I/O invites listeners to explore the music of now.

I/O Fest was founded in 2010 by Steven Bodner, Matthew Gold, and David Kechley.
