Event Description

Percy Grainger’s Molly on the Shore is known for its rhythmic intensity and subtle use of original themes. The many chromatic lines, Grainger’s signature, and the high level of variation in the instrumentation give the piece an unprecedented amount of energy. Irish Tune from County Derry was written in 1909 and dedicated to the memory of Edward Grieg, with rich sonorities that have made the piece a favorite for decades. Finally, Grainger’s arrangement of Bach’s O Mensch Bewein Dein Sünde Gross is a four-part transcription of a beautiful chorale prelude.

Ryan George found inspiration for Firefly from the way children use their imaginations to transform the ordinary and normal into the extraordinary and fantastic. In this fashion, Firefly sparks fantasies within the mind and then ushers them into unseen worlds.

Ron Nelson composed Rocky Point Holiday for the University of Minnesota Concert Band, creating an exciting virtuoso work that unites elements of jazz and classical construction into a new American style. Rocky Point is a wind-blown seaside resort on the coast of Rhode Island.

Edward Green’s Overture in Eb was inspired by the ideas of poet Eli Siegel, who found beauty in the synopsis of opposites. It begins quietly, with a long arched melody, and grows to reach climaxes of great power.

Ralph Vaughan Williams composed Toccata Marziale for the commemoration of the British Empire Exhibition of 1924. Although complex in rhythm and harmonic content, the piece exploits the fundamental properties of the band’s sonority, virtuosity and color.

Neighborhoods: What is Working

The Church and Proximity

How St. Matthews Episcopal Church in Westerville, Ohio created a new narrative for itself and been radically shaped by the community in which it lives and serves.

Restorative Practices: A Toolbox for Turbulent Times

Transcription of John and Peter's May 8, 2018 conversation with Thom Allena about his work in getting justice out of courthouses and into neighborhoods. Thom is a community and organizational psychologist who for nearly thirty-five years has worked in the fields of community and restorative justice, applying creative approaches to respond to crime, violence and group conflict. In Thom’s community justice work, citizens are invited to play active rather than passive roles in determining the shape of justice and become more directly involved in redressing the quality of life issues that are breached by crime.

Associating Associations: The Power of Convening

While many institutions are interested in enabling neighborhoods, they tend to focus on interventions and see convening as a means to their ends. An even more productive function could be to act as a neutral convener.

The Real Stories Behind the Unemployment Story

An article in The Guardian examines the full and complex story behind the nation’s jobless numbers as it plays out in Kansas City. LISC’s Financial Opportunity Centers are highlighted as a partial solution to egregious rates of unemployment among African Americans, helping people to become “net cash positive” and to build plans that are “inspiring to them,” says LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones.

Zombie Homes, Revived, Bring New Life to Chicago Neighborhoods

Zombie homes—caught in foreclosure limbo and abandoned—have pocked thousands of American neighborhoods since the Great Recession. An article in U.S. News takes a close look at how zombie remediation strategies, like those that LISC supports, connect families with homes in need of care, and energize communities in the bargain. LISC's CEO Maurice A. Jones and Chicago staff describe the intensive, cross-sector work that makes it all happen

LISC Institute Retools for the Future

Nearly a decade ago, LISC created the Institute for Comprehensive Community Development as a platform for the dynamic exchange of knowledge and ideas about our shared work, and as a clearing house for best practices.

Now, with renewed energy and leadership, we are delighted to be relaunching the Institute, equipped with an interactive website and a trove of fresh tools, views and data that will help propel our work into the future. Read all about it in a message from the Institute's founders.
