In mid-April, 18 Commonwealth students (more than 10% of the student body) formed four teams and participated in the Purple Comet! Math Meet, an international math competition for middle and high-school teams from 59 countries.

    • ThuApr28 Assembly: Rumbarroco 12:05 PM to 12:45 PM

      From the Boston Musical Intelligencer:

      Rumbarrocco self-describes as Latin-Baroque Fusion, though that label seems perhaps too modest, as what they are accomplishing reaches well beyond blending Latin-American sounds and rhythms with Baroque conventions. Director Laury Gutiérrez and her colleagues have created an ensemble that defies classification. Yes, they are using Baroque compositions for their arrangements, but with Latin-American rhythms, modal and tonal harmonies from Moorish and Sephardic traditions, even color and rhythm from North-American Jazz. Overall,  the players bring to the source material a jazzy improvisatory technique that is simultaneously groundbreaking and completely authentic.
