Dante Anzolini, the new director of the MIT Symphony Orchestra (MITSO), should have no trouble fitting into the MIT scene. Like many MIT students, he combined musical and mathematical studies in his undergraduate years, spent at the National University of La Plata in Argentina.
Born in Berisso, Argentina of Italian and Chilean parents, Dr. Anzolini received his master's degree and doctorate in musical arts at Yale University and has conducted with great success in Europe, the United States and South America.
For information on fall MITSO auditions, students may contact Matthew Agoglia at x3-2826 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or Petra Chong at email@example.com. Prior to the auditions, interested students are asked to complete a registration form (available in Rm 14N-207) so Dr. Anzolini can get to know the MIT music student population.
