Spring 2019 Performances

 

The venue for many of the Artists Beyond the Desk performances,
the MIT Chapel was designed by Finnish America architect Eero Saarinen and dedicated in 1955.

His nearby Kresge Auditorium and Kresge Oval complete the set.

Meridian Singers presents a lunchtime concert of pieces from the repertory of English and German part songs.
The part song was a popular form of communal music-making in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries,
with roots centuries earlier in such genres as the German Tenorlied. Featured composers include Isaac, Parry,
Mendelssohn, and Pearsall. Meridian Singers is an a cappella ensemble open to all in the MIT community.
