As part of the University-wide commemoration of the 1942 Chicago Pile-1 experiment, Arts, Science + Culture and the CP-1 Committee commissioned three new pieces of music that took as their inspiration the impact and implications of nuclear power. Alumni Amelia Kaplan and Clifton Callender and current graduate student Kevin Michael Kay had the world premier performances of their pieces on Saturday, December 2.
