As the Dartmouth College Wind Ensemble prepares for its fall concert on Friday, November 11, at 8 pm, here’s a behind-the-scenes look at intra-ensemble rivalries. Tongue in cheek? Oh, maybe just a little. But, then, that’s not a problem for this particular section of the ensemble!
Meanwhile, don’t miss the concert, titled Winds of Change, Part I: Early Innovators. Experience what makes wind ensemble music so fun to both play and listen to in a program that explores the highlights of a century of development in this exciting genre—from 19th-century outdoor military bands and ragtag village groups, to the sleek, sophisticated concert-hall ensembles after World War II.
