"The work of influential new music composer Christian Wolff, a Dartmouth professor emeritus, will be celebrated in a two-day series of concerts and events called “The Exception and the Rule,” set for Oct. 23-24.

A world-renowned composer whose ideas about sound have influenced contemporary music, Wolff has collaborated with artists including composer John Cage and choreographer Merce Cunningham and has devised approaches to music that have influenced generations of musicians and artists. The celebration will feature composers, musicologists, and performers and explore Wolff’s body of work and the invention, social activism, and curiosity that has animated his music."
