From Ben Zucker ’15:

Want to make music? Want to Be Alive???? Wesleyan’s production of Stephen Sondheim’s “Company” (running April 25-27) is looking for musicians to round out our pit orchestra. We are looking for string players, woodwind players (doublers encouraged!), trombonists, and percussionists.
