Dante Anzolini, recently promoted to Associate Professor of Music, will spend a sabbatical year across the river as director of orchestral activities at the New England Conservatory of Music. In addition, he will pursue conducting engagements in Europe, including a lengthy engagement at the Oper du Rhin in Strasbourg. Anzolini is currently music director of the MIT Symphony and chamber orchestras. This month, he'll lead the symphony orchestra on a tour of England with performances in important venues in London, Cambridge and Bath as part of the Cambridge-MIT Institute.
