Research shows the success of a bacterial community depends on its shape.
MIT has joined a program that offers free tickets to full-time students for concerts by the Collage New Music professional chamber ensemble. Collage's opening concert on Sunday, Oct. 29 will present the world premiere of the complete song cycle Mottetti di Montale by Institute Professor John Harbison.
The concert also includes Luciano Berio's Sequenza II for harp and Luigi Dallapiccola's Piccola Musica Notturna. It will be preceded by a talk by Collage's music director, David Hoose, and followed by a reception. It will be held at 7:30pm in the C. Walsh Theater at Suffolk University, 55 Temple Street, Boston, just behind the State House on Beacon Hill.
Future concerts will be held on Sunday, Jan. 28 and Sunday, April 22. Students can pick up two tickets with a student ID at the MIT Office of the Arts (Rm E15-205).
