Want To Play Music @ MIT?
Posted in: Life & Culture
When I got my first guitar at age 3, I immediately began dreaming of playing with (and for) other people. This dream took many forms when I got to college - I played solo in coffeehouses, as half of an acoustic duo in auditoriums, as part of a band in various bars & clubs. I sang in an a cappella group for most of college as well as college choir, and many of my friends played instruments in the orchestra and in various ensembles, as I imagine many of you will.
Some of the best musical moments, however, were those found in the less formal, impromptu picking-up-of-instruments that occurred late at night in the dorms - a guitar here, a drum here, a voice there.
In that spirit, here's a thread for MIT folks who are looking to hook up with other musicians in contexts other than the "official" MIT offerings. Post what you play and what you're looking for. For example, Kiersten and her friend Juan are looking for bass and drums.
I look forward to hearing music all over campus, at all hours of the day, come September. :-)
