Philip Hamilton

As part of my newfound connection to Middlebury intercultural house, PALANA, I am excited at the possibilities of working with visitor and alumnus Philip Hamilton. He is a musician and vocalist based out of New York and will be visiting Midd in November. Leroy Nesbitt of the Office of Institutional Diversity asked me to start dreaming ways to get students performing with Philip when he visits. Oh, the possibilities…

Right now, I want to have a marathon of sorts where students spend the entire day creating an original work of music, dance, and theater performance. Then, at night, they get to perform that newly created work that night. It’s an intensive experience and will require some real talent.
