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.
