About this event

The MIT Concert Choir presents the East Coast premiere of The Listeners by Pulitzer-Prize and GRAMMY®-award winning composer Caroline Shaw. This work for chorus, orchestra, and vocal soloists is a response to Carl Sagan’s Golden Record, launched into space within a NASA Voyager probe in 1977. The Listener’s libretto spans five centuries of poetry in Engish as well as recorded excerpts from the record as well a speech by Sagan. The Concert Choir will also present Baroque gems by Handel, Purcell, and Zelenka.
