Engineers in Concert
A breadth of student, faculty and staff talent will be on display at the 37th annual Engineers in Concert on March 16 at 7:30 p.m. in the Hatfield Hall Theater. This year’s show features dance routines; guitar, marimba and trombone pieces; vocal solos; a new jazz arrangement by Jazz Band director Norm Hanson; and even a Bollywood parody. Several student groups also will perform, including Rose-Hulman’s orchestra, jazz combo, jazz band and dance ensemble. Steve Newman, director of the Rose Chorus, will be master of ceremonies for this special event.
Engineers in Concert was started in 1981 by Dr. Joan Singer Spicknall and then student David Dvorak as an evening highlighting the talents of Rose-Hulman students, faculty and staff. For many years, the show was produced and directed by Dr. Mallory North, Professor Emeritus of Mechanical Engineering. In 2003, the show culminated a week of performances celebrating the opening of Hatfield Hall and honored the memory of Mr. Dvorak. The show features all genres of fine performing arts from classical, jazz, folk, and sacred music to juggling and dance. Dr. Brad Burchett has directed the show since 2004.
