Classes in jazz and opera... hip-hop dance performances... Bengali singing... contemporary art and chocolate desserts... chamber music... the world's largest collection of holography... All these can be sampled this weekend (April 6-9) by participants in Campus Preview Weekend 2000, when admitted students and their parents will visit MIT to get a feel for the campus, students and community.
In addition to the multitude of music, theater, dance and visual arts activities that occur on any given weekend at MIT, participants will have opportunities to sit in on various music classes and rehearsals sponsored by the music and theater arts section, attend a question-and-answer session about music at MIT, enjoy an "Open House/Dessert Circuit" sponsored by the MIT Museum and List Visual Arts Center and take an MIT architecture tour.
Throughout the weekend, Lobby 7 will be the site of Arts Stage, where members from MIT performance groups such as Movements in Time, Chamber Music Society, Gilbert & Sullivan Players and the Chorallaries will perform for passersby.
For more information, see the Campus Preview Weekend schedule of events.
