Molly Herron

When: Thu., May 4, 5 p.m. 2017

Music meets science, technology, engineering and math in an innovative new work by composer Molly Herron. Commissioned by Dartmouth College to participate in the school’s STEM Arts program, Herron paid multiple visits to the college’s Thayer School of Engineering, where scientific concepts offered ample inspiration. The songstress who, as her website tells it, “has composed for a broad range of instruments, from full orchestra to flower pot,” premieres her new piece, “Assembly,” alongside the Brooklyn-based percussion trio Tigue and guest vocalists. To top it off, the work will be performed on instruments built by Thayer students. Now that’s what we call crafting a sound.

Price: Free.
