Prize Concert

Weiss Prize Recipients Present Concert

Dickinson’s Weiss Prize recipients, seniors Stephen Reale, Alexander Strenta and David Cochrane, present "Night and Day," a concert featuring works composed by Reale and Strenta and conducted by Cochrane. The concert will be held in the Rubendall Recital Hall, Weiss Center for the Arts, 240 West High Street on Sunday, March 30, at 4 p.m.

The concert marks a watershed moment for Dickinson’s music program; Cochrane, who majors in music and Russian, is the college’s first music major to concentrate in conducting and the first student conductor to be awarded the prize. Whereas past Weiss Prize composers conducted performances of their own works, Cochrane works with both composers to present performances representing more than one musical point of view.

The Emil R. and Tamar Weiss Prize in the Creative Arts, established in 1986, is awarded annually to students majoring in English (creative-writing emphasis), theatre & dance, art & art history or music.
