Celebration of Music at Dartmouth 2011

Each year, the Music Department hosts a series of concerts that feature new works by contemporary composers. Graduate and Undergraduate students may showcase their works alongside those of established composers. The compositions are then performed by faculty, students, and special guests invited by the department. This year, the Voxare Quartet is the featured performance group partaking in the festival.
