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)

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.

A New Lease on the Life of a Library, Thanks to a LISC Board Member

An op-ed in the New York Times touts the inspired work of LISC board member Michelle de la Uz and the Fifth Avenue Committee, our longtime partner. The organization is helping build affordable housing atop a branch library in the Sunset Park section of Brooklyn—one of many city libraries that serves as a community resource center for a diverse, historically underinvested area. LISC New York made a $250K predevelopment loan and NEF has committed more than $10 million in equity.

Celebrating Latino Histories, Affirming Latino Futures

Ricardo Flores, director of LISC San Diego, kicks off our recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month with a blog about how working in partnership with Latino communities is key to the health of the country, and part of the fundamental relationship between local and national prosperity. "The conditions of the Latino population today provide us with a peek into the wellbeing of our society tomorrow and in the years to come," writes Flores.

CDFI Fund Fuels Economic Opportunity

LISC will seed a new small business development fund and spur healthy food-related enterprises with this week's award from the federal Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund). The funding will help support entrepreneurs, create jobs, expand local incomes and reduce blight in low-income areas.
