Famed O'Farrill to guest in Barbary Coast performance

This Saturday the Barbary Coast Jazz Ensemble will perform in Spaulding Auditorium at 8 p.m. with guest artist Arturo O'Farrill, a forerunner of Latin piano and the bandleader of the Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra at the Lincoln Center. Rather than pretend to write this article from a neutral perspective, I will be honest: I am the pianist of the Barbary Coast and over the last few weeks I've had the opportunity to play the charts to be performed this Saturday.


Dances of passion: Ensemble wows audiences in Moore

Hours upon hours of work. Weeks of sweat and pain. Zealous months of dedication. An entire year's effort for one show. The Dartmouth Dance Ensemble's performances in Moore Theater this past weekend were the culmination of all these things, and it showed in their high level of professionalism and ability to touch even the hardest of hearts, creating two highly memorable performances. Sunday's show began with a playful dance set to music by Carl Orff.
