The MIT Muses will be singing the National Anthem at the FleetCenter on April 7 before the game between the Boston Celtics and the Washington Wizards. Aeronautics and astronautics graduate student Annalisa Weigel, a Muse alumna (SB 1994 and 1995) created the arrangement for a 1994 basketball game at MIT but says she always had "grand aspirations" for the Muses. As director of the all-women a cappella ensemble from 1992-95, she included a studio recording of "The Star Spangled Banner" on their CD Ambrosia with the intent of using it as an audition tape.

A version of this article appeared in the March 17, 1999 issue of MIT Tech Talk (Volume 43, Number 23).
