Many Hop musicians make their way to the hospitable white-clapboard house at 13 East Wheelock. In the past year alone, students from the East Wheelock Cluster have gathered there to meet and sometimes hear house concerts by members of the chamber orchestra The Knights, pianist Stephen Hough, the early music ensemble Sequentia, the rock-folkloric Mexican-American band La Santa Cecilia and Hop pianist-in-residence Sally Pinkas.
On Thursday, May 5, the guest musicians were fellow students: members of the Dartmouth College Wind Ensemble, and their director Matthew M. Marsit. Over a yummy buffet dinner, Marsit and his players talked about the Wind Ensemble’s concert on Saturday, May 7, at 8 pm, in Spaulding Auditorium—a program of lush, jazz-inflected 20th- and 21st-century music by composers from the US and abroad, and featuring Dartmouth seniors Steven Povich, as trumpet soloist for one work, and Jacob Weissman, as guest conductor on another.
