Event Description

Yale Concert Band invites audience to bring bells and participate in Tchaikovksy’s 1812 Overture!

Thomas C. Duffy, Music Director

2:00 PM

Woolsey Hall (500 College Street), New Haven

Free Admission

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky wrote the 1812 Overture to commemorate Russia’s triumph over Napoleon, but this rousing piece has turned into a beloved American icon. Today’s audience members are invited to bring bells of any kind and participate in the celebratory finale.

Adam Gorb has described his Yiddish Dances as “very much a party piece.” Comprised of five movements that are all based on Klezmer music – the traditional music of Jews from Eastern Europe – each dance is harmonically rich and full of metrical asymmetries.

Percy Aldridge Grainger’s Molly on the Shore is based on two Irish folk dances: “Temple Hill” and “Molly on the Shore.” This boisterous piece is known for its tireless energy and rhythmic intensity.

George Cohan’s You’re a Grand Old Flag, Samuel Barber’s Commando March, and Edwin Goldman’s Third Alarm March are three American marches for band that are filled with patriotic spirit and excitement.

 

Also:

Scenes from The Louvre (N. Dello Joio)

Overture to Colas Breugnon (D. Kabalevsky)
