Benefit concert this Sunday

MIT students have joined with students from four other universities to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina and the Oct. 8 earthquake in Pakistan, India and Afghanistan with a benefit concert.

Two months in the works, the concert scheduled for 3-5 p.m. at Walker Memorial on Sunday, Nov. 6, was the brainchild of sophomore Rany Woo, who worked with members of Kappa Alpha Theta, Sigma Phi Epsilon and the Society of Women Engineers.

Student musicians from MIT, Harvard University, Berklee College of Music, Wellesley College and Brandeis University are scheduled to appear.

"This intercollegiate concert shows that through collaboration and unification, we can make a difference," Woo said.
