Awards and Honors

The MIT Muses' latest CD, Elysian Fields, has been nominated for "Best Female Collegiate Album" for the 1999 Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards presented by the Contemporary A Cappella Society of America (CASA). (In 1996, the Chorallaries of MIT won first place in CASA's Northern New England Regional competition.) During their IAP tour, the Muses traveled down the East Coast, performing at Penn State, North Carolina State and Disney World, where they were dubbed "honorary cast members" and sang in the Starlight Cafe in the Magic Kingdom.

Felice Frankel, a research scientist in electrical engineering and computer science and artist-in-residence, has been invited to give a talk at the President's Session at the American Chemical Society's annual meeting on March 21 in Anaheim, CA. Among her co-speakers will be Roald Hoffmann, Nobel laureate in chemistry. Also that evening, a commissioned exhibition of her photographs will be part of an event at the Fernbank Museum in Atlanta celebrating the 100th anniversary of the American Physical Society. The exhibition, "Envisioning Physics," consists of 30 large images showing physical phenomena in research.

A version of this article appeared in the March 10, 1999 issue of MIT Tech Talk (Volume 43, Number 22).
