Informed by his time at Caltech, including his experiences with the Glee Club, alumnus David Wei has created a fund to support music performances and programs. He hopes others will contribute as well.
As a newly arrived graduate student at Caltech, David Wei (MS ’04, PhD ’07) was wandering around a club fair on Beckman Mall and—despite not considering himself a good singer—felt drawn to the Glee Club booth. After some encouragement and a bit of coaching from then-director Donald Caldwell, Wei was soon a part of holiday performances at Dabney Hall, local churches, and other venues.
“The activity took time from my already very busy schedule, but it was time well spent,” Wei says. “It gave me a break from classes and research, and offered the chance to learn more culture.” [Caltech story]
