The Sound of Joy

  • Mendon, Vt., resident Al Wakefield, left, takes a lesson from Dartmouth classical saxophone lecturer Michael Zsoldos, of Woodstock, Vt., at The North Chapel in Woodstock on Wednesday, July 11, 2018. Wakefield was one of 70 students Interplay Jazz brought together for a summer program, and he is now applying the basics he learned there. After a life as a "corporate guy," music functions as a way for Wakefield to get his emotions out. "At this stage in my life, it brings me great joy," Wakefield said.
