New York’s Metropolitan Club was the setting on 16 April for the announcement of the 2009/10 Fellows and Residents of the American Academy in Rome at the Arthur and Janet C. Ross Rome Prize Ceremony.

Lots to report—including the details of an electrifying performance at that event by the Cassatt String Quartet of pieces by Academy composers Andrew Norman FAAR’07, Ken Ueno FAAR’07 and Sebastian Currier FAAR’94.
