By Barra A. Peak ’18

Orchestra rehearsal may have ended last night, but the tune of “I am the Captain of the Pinafore” is still in my head. I find Sullivan’s peppy, cheerful music to be a joy to listen to and a joy to play, and this semester it seems the whole orchestra is in agreement; rehearsal is a fun time!

This semester we’re pleased to welcome many new faces to the HRG&SP orchestra alongside our steadfast returning players. Under the baton of veteran HRG&SP music director Jacob Moscona ’16, the orchestra has been hard at work for the past month to learn the music for H.M.S. Pinafore. Last night the cast and orchestra came together for the first time to run the whole show. There were hiccups—skipped repeats and misplaced fermatas—but the energy and skill of all our musicians shone through. We look forward to serenading you a month from now with what promises to be a show to remember!

If you are interested in joining the HRG&SP orchestra, please email! The orchestra is open to all Harvard affiliates and members of the Boston/Cambridge community.

Tickets to H.M.S. Pinafore are available through the Harvard Box Office. We hope to see you there!
