More than 500 musicians took part in an extended musical collage in Finney Chapel on November 16, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Oberlin's TIMARA department. 

The immersive surround-sound experience combined live electronic and computer processing and fixed media with performances by numerous groups including Oberlin Conservatory’s Brass Ensemble, College Choir, and Collegium, Oberlin College Taiko and OSteel, Oberlin Choristers, the Obertones and Acapelicans, and the Oberlin College and High School marching bands.

It’s Saturday night in March and there’s a pulsating glow spilling from the windows of the Root Room in Carnegie Building. Inside, rows of spectators line the perimeter of a long narrow stage. Oberlin’s most anticipated fashion show begins as cheers swell when models, draped in creative attire, take their turn down the walk. This is a signature event during Black History Month. It also serves as inspiration for this week’s photo series.
