Women’s growing voice in concert band music is celebrated in this joyous, pulse-pounding concert. Included are works by Pulitzer winner Higdon and Grammy winner Larsen; as well as Giroux’s symphony, displaying the gifts for melody and orchestration that have made her a hit in concert halls and as a film and (Emmy-winning) TV composer.
Marsit leads student and select community musicians through an exciting array of repertoire for the wind ensemble, from the 19th century to today, including many world premieres. The ensemble’s inventive thematic programming is often coupled with educational components and projects to engage young musicians and audiences alike.
Women’s growing voice in concert band music is celebrated in “Music, She Wrote…,” a joyous, pulse-pounding concert by the Dartmouth College Wind Ensemble on Saturday, October 21, 8 pm, in Spaulding Auditorium of the Hopkins Center for the Arts at Dartmouth College.
