Called the "funkiest and most fun happening in town" by The Improper Bostonian, the Mobius Art-Rage party FUN(d)raiser includes the talents of two MIT staff members: Hiroko Kikuchi, education/outreach coordinator for the List Visual Arts Center, is co-organizer; and one of the exhibitors and performers is Magda Fernandez, senior office assistant in the Office of the Arts. The event is on Saturday, Nov. 23 from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. and admission is $20 at the door or $15 advance. Mobius , Boston's oldest artist-run center for experimental work, is located at 205 A Street in South Boston's Fort Point.

"A New England Seasonal," the latest collaboration between Charles Shadle , lecturer in music, and Michael Ouellette, senior lecturer in theater, will be premiered by the commissioning organization, the Newton Choral Society , on Sunday, Nov. 24 at 4 p.m. at Church of the Covenant (at the corner of Newbury and Berkeley steets in Boston). Shadle, who will present a pre-concert talk at 3:30 p.m., composed the cantata for mezzo-soprano, chorus and chamber orchestra, basing it on 19th-century texts by New England writers such as Emily Dickinson and Henry David Thoreau, as set by Ouellette. The MIT duo had previously collaborated on the one-act opera, "Coyote's Dinner," which premiered at MIT in 2001. Tickets are $20, or $16 for students and seniors.
