Hop pianist-in-residence takes to the stage alongside the brilliant Dartmouth clarinetist Jan Halloran. The accomplished musicians have selected a wide-ranging program including Leonard Bernstein's sizzling Sonata, the dreamy Arabesque by Germaine Tailleferre, Sonatine by Valerie Coleman, Eternal garden by David Maslanka, and the romantic Pacific Serenade by Miguel Del Águila.

ChamberWorks is a delightful series of free concerts showcasing the exceptional talents of Dartmouth Music Department's faculty, students and special guests. It is a co-production of the Hopkins Center and the Department of Music.

Jan Halloran
A resident of the Boston area, Jan Halloran holds the position of Principal Clarinet with Boston Lyric Opera and regularly appears with many of the city's preeminent ensembles, including Boston Modern Orchestra Project, Odyssey Opera, Boston Philharmonic and Boston Classical Orchestra. In addition, her busy freelance career features performances throughout New England. She has been a member of the Portland Symphony's clarinet section since 1993, spends summers with Opera North and Monadnock Music and performs with the Rhode Island Philharmonic.

Sally Pinkas
Following her London debut at Wigmore Hall, Israeli-born pianist Sally Pinkas has garnered acclaim for her performances as soloist and chamber musician. Among highlights are performances with the Boston Pops, the Aspen Philharmonia and New York's Jupiter Symphony, and at the festivals of Marlboro, Aspen, Rockport (USA), Pontlevoy (France), Havana (Cuba) and HCMC Conservatory (Vietnam). From a first-ever performance of Beethoven's Emperor Concerto in Bandung, Indonesia, to premieres of George Rochberg's monumental Circles of Fire for two pianos in Russia and Nigeria, and a revival of rarely-heard 19th-century Filipino Salon Music in its birth city Manila, Pinkas commands a wide repertoire and shares it enthusiastically with young pianists through masterclasses and workshops. Pinkas holds performance degrees from Indiana University and the New England Conservatory of Music, and a PhD. in Composition from Brandeis University. Her principal teachers were Russell Sherman, George Sebok, Luise Vosgerchian and Genia Bar-Niv (piano), Sergiu Natra (composition), and Robert Koff (chamber music). Pianist-in-residence at the Hopkins Center at Dartmouth College, she is Professor of Music at Dartmouth's Music Department.
