Specials and Details

On this page we will announce specials and detail about the Winterball weekend. Please check this page regularly as we will publish information as soon as available.


Calling all Fulbright Musicians! We are looking for any musically-inclined Fulbrighters to join us at the Winterball. Over the weekend, we hope to rehearse and then play in the evening a few songs (Star Spangled Banner, and 1 or 2 other pieces) at the Winter Ball. We are looking for both singers and musicians (A Steinway Grand Piano will be available at the event location). If you would like to participate, please contact for further details.

**You do not have to be a professional musician--just a Fulbrighter with a passion for music!








Sumi Kittelberger will sing us the following arias:

  • "Je veux vivre"  - Juliette - Romeo et Juliette (Gounod)
  • "O mio babbino caro" - Lauretta - Gianni Schicchi (Puccini)
  • "I feel pretty"  - Maria - West Side Story (Bernstein)

Sumi will be accompanied by Joe Nykiel at the piano.
