When most people think about the Pacific, romantic images of couples lounging on picturesque beaches come to mind. After all, it’s paradise, right? \n It’s hard, however, to imagine spending extended amounts of time in such an area; not many students — let alone adults — would choose to live in the Republic of the Marshall Islands, an island country near the equator used as the location for the United States’ atomic bomb testing from 1946 to 1958. Yet, that is exactly what Justine Goggin ’18 did during her sophomore winter term.

Sequentia, an ensemble of international singers and instrumentalists, will take the stage for the world premiere of “Monks Singing Pagans: Medieval songs of heroes, gods and strong women.”
