From ancient times to today, we wonder: what is love?

19/20 Hop Ensemble

This program pairs Vivaldi's Gloria—inspired by a triumphant and joyous approach to religion, life and love—with a bouquet of contemporary works for chorus and strings. The chorus sings Pulitzer-winning composer David Lang's I Lie, and strings perform works by Schnittke, Part and Italian composer Matteo Belli. (Lang's music will also be heard later this season at the Hop in The Day, an evening-length work featuring prima ballerina Wendy Whelan.)

The Dartmouth College Glee Club is a group of 40 or so serious choral singers. Its ever-increasing repertory spans five centuries, with a distinguished performance history including many of the masterworks of choral-orchestral literature; fully staged opera, operettas and musicals with all-student casts; large and small a cappella works; and the cherished songs of Dartmouth College. In addition to international tours to Canada, Italy and Brazil, the Glee Club regularly tours all across the United States. They have released five CDs of choral music and  performed the Brahms Requiem in Carnegie Hall in 2000. Their tour to Cuba in December of 2014 included the rarely performed Romancero Gitano for guitar and chorus. A national search for a director is currently underway.
