Thompson begins first season as Artistic Director for the Boston Chamber Music Society
Marcus Thompson, acclaimed violinist and viola d'amour player, and Robert R. Taylor Professor of Music in the School's Music and Theater section, is beginning his first season as Artistic Director for the Boston Chamber Music Society. A founding member of the BCMS, Thompson has also catalyzed winter festival concerts on three successive Saturdays in January at MIT.
The Boston Globe reports that the "three concerts will be multimedia-enabled presentations of mostly American works. Each concert will be preceded by a forum on the theme of time in music, which will also be the theme of a concurrent MIT course offered during MIT’s winter term."
