Current Place:
Audio Communication Group, Technische Universität Berlin


This poster advertises an MIT Choral Society concert that took place at the Freie Universität Berlin on July 3, 1962. The poster forms part of a collection of historical correspondence and other documents held by the Audio Communication Group, Technische Universität Berlin. The fact that it was preserved along with technical and organizational correspondence illustrates the multifaceted connections that existed between the audio technology research group at the Technische Universität (located in West Berlin, like the Freie Universität) and research institutions in the United States. The concert program featured a mix of canonical German-speaking composers (Bach, Bruckner) and contemporary American academic music (Ives, Copland), emphasizing the cultural links between the two countries. The MIT Choral Society existed between 1923 and 1989, when it became the MIT Concert Choir.
