Event Description

 

Thomas C. Duffy, Music Director

 

Dances from Crete. Adam Gorb sends listeners on a musical tour of Crete through four dynamic movements, from a portrait of the Minotaur in the first, to the finale’s raucously triumphant Greek dance.

 

Aegean Festival Overture reflects the metrical asymmetry of Greek music. With its opening driving energy and subsequent lyric plaintiveness, Andreas Makris’ overture reflects a blend of classical form and Greek folkloristic elements.

 

Greek Folk Song Suite (Franco Cesarini). A delightful collection of tunes based on Greek folk music. The Yale Concert Band will perform this music in Athens, Greece, in June.

 

In October, Eric Whitacre captures the quiet beauty of the eponymous month. The music’s simple, pastoral melodies and lush harmonies evoke the clear autumn air and changes in light that characterize the transition from fall to winter.

 

Urbino. The United States premiere of Michele Mangani’s celebratory fanfare and march, commissioned to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the Urbino Wind Orchestra.  The Yale Concert Band will perform this piece under Maestro Mangani’s direction in Urbino, Italy, in May.

 

Stand the Storm (Julian Work). Work’s goal was to develop his own style of orchestration, using whatever compositional devices might best serve the needs of his current subject. Describing himself as a composer influenced by the music of Debussy and Ravel, Work deliberately tried to avoid falling into predictable patterns. This march does not sound like the “usual” march, but is a compelling compilation of meters, motives, and machinations!

 

Additional music: Americans We  (Henry Fillmore)

Neighborhoods: What is Working

Leadership Is a Process of Community

Martin Luther King, Jr. did not march for freedom and equality alone. He was the visionary voice for the collective effort of hundreds of thousands of people.When we deconstruct leadership, we will not find a hero at the heart of leadership. We will find community.

What to Do When the Door to the Status Quo Opens Slightly

There are times when you manage to open the door ever so slightly to the status quo -- organizations and institutions that have power and resources to back up their perspective and mandate. To make inroads you must walk through that door and engage with the very people you think are the cause of the problem.

Freeing Yourself from the Consumer Culture

Peter talks with Eric Zimmer, host and producer of The One You Feed, named one of the Best Health Podcasts of All Time by The Huffington Post. They discuss the four pillars of the free market ideology, our longing for perfection, how questions bring us together and answers alienate us . . . and much more.

Open Streets Project Revamped

The Open Streets Project has undergone some changes over the last year. We bid a sad farewell to project co-founder, the Alliance for Biking & Walking, who are moving on to other things, and we happily welcomed a new partner, international Open Streets leader 8 80 Cities. We are excited for all the possibilities and energy this partnership will bring.

One Day of Service Among 8,395 (that’s 23 years)—and Counting

The day we memorialize Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s legacy is special indeed—and so are the other 364 days a year when LISC AmeriCorps members serve their communities, as they have for the past two plus decades.

Props for Duluth’s Innovating Economy

Twin Cities Business magazine takes an in-depth look at Duluth, MN’s push to diversify and energize its commercial and civic life. Investments, including LISC’s, in infrastructure and workforce and business development are having a broadly felt impact in areas ranging from manufacturing to aviation to the arts.

Is Equitable Development Possible? Cincinnati Says ‘Yes!’ But It Takes Work.

Two articles about development in the Walnut Hills neighborhood of Cincinnati show the pitfalls and inspiring potential facing a community dedicated to reviving its economy to benefit all residents. But it takes concerted planning and sustained local involvement. For example, LISC and many of our longtime partners are working to bring about the new mixed-use Paramount Square project there, which will encompass housing, commercial space and Esoteric Brewing, the region’s first African American-founded brewery.
