Editor’s Note: In the summer 2005 issue of Insights, music professor Lynne Morrow was featured under the headline "Quantum Star." It certainly didn't take long for Morrow to show how fast her star is rising, as she was nominated for a 2006 Grammy Award in the Best Choral Performance category. The nomination citation read:

Category 99
Best Choral Performance

(Award to the choral conductor, and to the orchestra conductor if an orchestra is on the recording, and to the choral director or chorus master if applicable.)

Bernstein: Mass
Kent Nagano, conductor; Simon Halsey and
Kai-Uwe Jirka, choir directors; Richard Grant and Lynne Morrow, chorus masters (Julian Frischling and Jerry Hadley; Rundfunkchor Berlin, Staats-Und Domchor Berlin & Soloists of the Pacific Mozart Ensemble; Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin) [Harmonia Mundi]

Although she didn’t take home the Grammy from the Feb. 8 awards ceremony, it is still quite an honor. Congratulations, Lynne!
