Each fall, the Hop welcomes a new batch of Dartmouth student interns. For the next academic year, these six juniors and seniors will spend 10 hours a week embedded in various Hop departments, learning the ropes in production, marketing, educational outreach, box office, house management, graphic design and more, and taking on important responsibilities in those Hop arenas.
We asked this year’s interns to introduce themselves and tell us what Hop events they most look forward to this fall.
Madeline Miller ‘18 is a cognitive science major from Anchorage, Alaska. She is interning for the Donald Claflin Jewelry Studio within the Hop’s student workshops department. Madeline says: “I’m looking forward to collaborating with students from other departments in the HOP and spending more time working at the student workshops!”
Madeline’s five top fall picks:
Antigone in Ferguson: The arts provide a venue for societal criticism and allow us to examine our own communities and the impact we have. I look forward to seeing how this production handles analyzing the modern issues we’re facing within the classic Greek tragedy.
Dartmouth College Wind Ensemble: Conductor Matthew Marsit creates incredible performances that take the listener on a musical journey, whether it’s through the history of wind ensemble music or an exploration of modern works.
Emerson String Quartet: I love the sounds of small string ensembles, and their set list includes classics from Mozart and Beethoven as well as a new composition. Having the opportunity to listen to a highly renowned quartet is an incredible experience I wouldn’t want to miss!
Cabaret, by the Dartmouth Department of Theater: Seeing a musical live is such an incredible experience, and my favorite way to fall in love with the songs and story. The Theater department at Dartmouth always amazes me, and I’ve yet to attend a production of theirs that wasn’t incredibly enjoyable.
It’s Criminal (film): After seeing the “Telling My Story” performance from last spring, I was moved and left with a lot of questions about the background and how the class worked. It’s Criminal” focuses on the same class and would give a closer look into the creation of that performance.
