The up-and-coming composer Quinn Mason who won the special selection prize in the competition, joins the wind orchestra for the world premiere of his winning work, Journeys III. Described as "a brilliant composer just barely in his 20s who seems to make waves wherever he goes," (Theater Jones) Mason brings his symphonic music to campus. The evening also features other selections from the 2020 Dartmouth Wind Ensemble Composition Competition including Cerro y Nube by Eduardo Aguilar.

Generously supported by the Deborah E. and Arthur E. Allen, Jr. 1932 Fund, the Richard F. Mattern 1970 Fund and Friends of the Dartmouth College Wind Ensemble

Eduardo Aguilar was born in 1991 in the town of Ocotlan, in the state of Oaxaca (Mexico). He studied composition at the National Autonomous University of Mexico. Aguilar has worked actively with wind bands of children and youth from the smaller communities in his town, with young musicians who have formed internationally representative wind bands and ensembles of the state, as well as with the official wind band of the state. Some of his projects seek to explore new forms of individual and communal wind instruments practice; his work in these areas is deeply linked to his own experience as a member of an original town in Oaxaca.
