Event Description

Thomas C. Duffy, Music Director

The symphonic poem Miške (In the Forest) was the first major musical success of Lithuanian composer and painter M.K. Čiurlionis. Throughout the piece, one hears hints of Lithuanian folk music and witnesses Čiurlionis’ mastery of organic unity and instrumental color. The Band is pleased to welcome guest conductor Ugnius Vaiginis, (music director of Trimitas, Lithuania’s official wind orchestra), who has arranged the piece for concert band. (More information about Trimitas and Maestro Vaiginis may be found at www.trimitas.lt).

William Schuman wrote New England Triptych as a tribute to the music of William Billings, an early American composer. The first section, Be Glad Then, America, is noble and majestic. The piece continues with When Jesus Wept, a sensitive interpretation of a sacred theme. Chester, an American Revolutionary hymn and marching song, offers a dramatic finish to this dynamic work.

Corpus Callosum, by Thomas C. Duffy, invites listeners to imagine a conductor whose brain has been split in half in order to create a bilaterally independent conductor. Frequently, the conductor’s hands are in different meters; while the left conducts nostalgic music in one meter, the right directs patriotic marches. This exciting musical collage is the realization of the “two-brained” conductor.

Yale Concert Band alumna Elizabeth Kelly ’04 wrote Ice to express her fascination with the changes of weather that characterize a northeastern winter. This three-movement concerto for electric guitar and band represent different states of water, ranging from a flow of cold water to the cracking of ice. Featuring Yale School of Music alumnus Trevor Babb ’14, electric guitar.

Additional music: Variations on America and Here’s to Good Old Yale (C. Ives)

LISC Turns 40!

And we've got a lot to celebrate: $20 billion in total investments, record impact in 2018, a 20-year collaboration with the NFL Foundation, and the list goes on. At a gala event in New York City, LISC honors the indispensable work of our partner organizations and the two-decade service of our board chair, former Treasury Secretary Robert E. Rubin.

In Forbes, Props for LISC’s Work With ESPN & Under Armour to Make Space for Play

An in-depth article in Forbes looks at how ESPN is putting its weight behind programs to boost sports and play in under-resourced places, and calls out LISC’s innovative RePlay partnership with ESPN and Under Armour. Since the collaboration began, we’ve helped 12 community organizations and schools revitalize play spaces and other facilities that promote physical and emotional wellbeing for hundreds of young people in Baltimore neighborhoods with high rates of poverty.

A Model Worth Copying: Joint Ownership Structures for CDCs

In an in-depth article for The Journal of Affordable Housing and Community Development Law, attorneys David Goldstein and Jason Labate offer a case study of the Joint Operating Entity NYC (JOE NYC), which LISC has supported from its inception. The JOE NYC, a consortium of CDCs that have pooled their portfolios and expertise, is a blueprint that can help CDCs in other cities and regions shore up their stability in challenging markets and gain ground against the national affordability crisis.
