The famed bassist and author headlines Berklee's 17th annual Liberal Arts Symposium. The symposium will also include performances by Berklee students directed by Skip Smith, associate professor of ensemble, as well as original music by the student winners of the Songwriting for Social Change Contest.

Victor Wooten, five-time Grammy Award–winning bassist, is known for both his solo career and his work as a member of Béla Fleck and the Flecktones. Wooten is also a skilled naturalist and teacher, published author, magician, husband, and father of four. His book, The Music Lesson: A Spiritual Search for Growth through Music, is used in the LHUM-100 Artistry, Creativity, and Inquiry Seminar. Wooten illustrates in his book that musical gifts mirror those from life, and that each movement, phrase, and chord has its own meaning, as long as one is open to finding it. Learn more about Wooten's residency.

The Liberal Arts Symposium is cosponsored by the Liberal Arts Department, the Professional Education Division Herb Alpert Scholars Program, the Office for Cultural Diversity and Inclusion, and the Office of Faculty Development.
