Nuance is The University of Akron's premier all-male a cappella group.

The group's first professionally published full-length album, New Suit, features over a dozen favorite arrangements, 28 past and present members, and mixing by a four-time Emmy award winner. After outgrowing the University's largest auditorium four semesters in a row, this engaging and dynamic group of singers is thrilled to take their semiannual concert off-campus and into the community with a debut performance at the Akron Civic Theatre.

Dr. Julie Kornfield, professor of chemical engineering at the California Institute of Technology, will discuss how polymers known as "mega-supramolecules" can lead to cleaner and safer fuels when she speaks at 2 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 10, in Room 130 of the Polymer Engineering Academic Center, as part of the 2015 Bayer MaterialScience Lectureship, to be called Covestro starting Sept. 1.

Kornfield will also lecture on Sept. 11, at 11 a.m. in the Goodyear Polymer Center, Room 229, about new phenomena and physical properties made possible through controlling interactions between polymer end groups.

Both talks are free and open to the public, though reservations are requested by those who are not faculty, staff or students at UA. Reserve your seat and receive a free parking pass at uakron.edu/kornfield. Abstracts of both lectures and an interview with Kornfield are at uakron.edu/kornfield/abstract.
