Handel Society performs “Messiah”

This term’s Handel Society show in the Spaulding Auditorium at the Hopkins Center will showcase one of George Frideric Handel’s more famous works, “Messiah” (1742).


Glee Club brought Mozart’s “Requiem Mass” to life

The Dartmouth College Glee Club partnered with a guest orchestra and four outside soloists to bring the program “Monumental Mozart” to life on Sunday. They performed excerpts from “The Magic Flute” (1791) and “Requiem Mass in D Minor” (1791), as well as works by Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninoff and an original composition by co-president Brian Chalif ’16.


Students perform 30 skits in 60 minutes

In 60 minutes, “Too Much Light Makes the Baby go Blind” will cover material from the College’s slang to the recent change in international student financial aid policy. Ariel Klein ’17 and Naomi Lazar ’17, both members of the Displaced Theater Company, are producing the series of 30 skits in 60 minutes.


The Bad Plus with Joshua Redman to play at the Hop

Bass and drums are generally thought to be paired with guitars, not pianos, but The Bad Plus counters that idea with lively jazz that relies on a piano-drums-bass trio. The outfit originally consisted of pianist Ethan Iverson, bassist Reid Anderson and drummer David King, but the three are currently collaborating with saxophonist Joshua Redman.


Student Spotlight: Avery Feingold '17

Some people hate reading Shakespeare in high school. Some people love it. Some people love his works so much that they want to bring his words to life on stage. Avery Feingold ’17, president of the Rude Mechanicals, falls into the latter category.


Students seize artistic opportunities

While the arts at Dartmouth can take many forms, one of the most accessible is student performing groups. From a Shakespeare troupe to multiple a cappella, improv comedy and dance groups, there is almost always an opportunity to watch a performance. All the groups may have different focuses, but they are all the same in one respect — all have dedicated seniors who have put years of hard work and love into them.

Public sculptures such as “X-Delta” help add interest to the College’s landscape design.


Landscaping brings aesthetic value to campus

Beyond trying to grab the swinging platform of “X-Delta” as a study space on the nicer days and complaining about the strange proportions of the Baker-Berry Library windows, most students do not spend a lot of time thinking about campus landscaping, an aspect of the College that has a daily impact on their lives.

Dartmouth musicians welcomed the Nile Project at “Sing Africa!”


The Nile Project brings music, discussion to Hanover

After driving two passenger vans to campus from Portland, Maine, on Monday, several of the musicians who form part of The Nile Project — a collaborative group of artists from 11 countries along the Nile Basin who use music to draw awareness to and provoke discussion about the region — will pile into yet another van this evening and head to Thetford, Vermont, for a local musicians exchange. There, as part of its mid-April residency at the College, the international group will participate in a “jam session,” Hopkins Center publicity coordinator Rebecca Bailey said.
