19/20 Hop Ensemble

The Dartmouth College Wind Ensemble performs works by Omar Thomas, Charles Ives, Robert Russell Bennett, Judith Lang Zaimont and Warren Benson.

The DCWE is a select, auditioned wind ensemble of 45 members, performing a wide variety of music from the late 19th-, 20th- and 21st-century wind ensemble repertoire. The DCWE welcomes new director Brian Messier, who comes to the Hop from directing ensembles at Williams College and its environs. The DCWE serves as a melting pot for the students of Dartmouth College as well as residents of the Upper Valley, sharing music with our community and those communities beyond the boundaries of our campus through concertizing, small and large outreach projects and performances, and charitable endeavors that bring the gift of music and music making to all who welcome it.
