WHAT IS THE DARTMOUTH COLLEGE WIND ENSEMBLE?
One of the premiere ensembles of the Hopkins Center, the Dartmouth College Wind Ensemble is a select, auditioned wind ensemble of 50 members, performing a wide variety of music from the late 19th, 20th and 21st century wind ensemble repertoire. Offering three concerts per year in Spaulding Auditorium, the DCWE also gives several special event performances on and off campus, including an annual performance at Dartmouth’s Commencement. Wind Ensemble concerts take on a wide variety of formats ranging from chamber to symphonic ensembles, from the traditional to the avant-garde. Ensemble members also have the opportunity to conduct and mentor young musicians through the Dartmouth Youth Winds program and other community outreach projects.
