This exhibition explores the extraordinary connection between the MIT mind and music. Delving into the holdings of the Lewis Music Library and the Institute Archives and Special Collections, the exhibit reveals MIT’s diverse musical interests, the accomplishments of its talented students and faculty, and the rich history the Institute’s musical groups and clubs.

The Lewis Music Library’s Music at MIT Oral History Project was established in 1999 to document the vibrant history of music at MIT.
