Love is in the air at the PAW news desk. First, we read an NPR story about Near Eastern studies graduate student Aaron Rock, his new bride, Cara Singer ’09, and their decision to start married life as the “Rock-Singers.” Then, we received a video link from recent Ph.D. recipient Dante Ricci *12, a postdoc in the molecular biology department, who did his own rock singer act to propose to fellow alum Audra Pompeani *09. The two met at Princeton while working in neighboring labs at the Lewis Thomas Laboratory. Pompeani is now a veterinary student at Penn.
We’ll let the video tell the rest of the story. Who knew a trombone solo could be so romantic?
