Daune Mahy, director of the Oberlin in Italy program, has announced an informational meeting for the Oberlin in Italy 2000 program on Thursday, November 4, 12:15 P.M., in Bibbins 224. The program, now in its 13th annual offering, is open to singers, accompanists, string quartets and liberal arts students.

"This intensive, integrated program provides a real immersion into Italian language and culture," Mahy said. "It's ideal for performance majors who seek more training, language studies and performance opportunities, and for liberal arts majors who have an interest in the study of art history, Italian literature, and painting, drawing, ceramics or cooking."
