Music at MIT Oral History Project

The Lewis Music Library's Music at MIT Oral History Project was established in 1999 to document the history of music at MIT. For over 100 years, music has been a vibrant part of MIT's culture. Through in-depth recorded interviews with current and retired MIT music faculty, staff, former students, and visiting artists, the Music at MIT Oral History Project is preserving this valuable legacy for the historical record. These individuals provide a wealth of information about MIT.
