Event Description

Yale Concert Band Season Opener to feature Rossini's Semiramide and Grantham's J'ai été au bal

Thomas C. Duffy, Music Director

Donald Grantham’s J’ai été au bal (I went to the dance) celebrates Cajun folk music and the New Orleans street band tradition. To evoke a dance flavor, the piece employs two traditional Cajun dance tunes, “Allonds danser, Colinda” (“Let’s go dancing, Colinda”) and “Les fammes d’enfer” (“The flames of hell”).

The Overture to Semiramide opens what is considered to be one of Gioachino Rossini’s masterworks. Sparkling and dynamic, the piece is a dramatic beginning to an opera filled with betrayal and murder. V.F. Safranek created this thrilling transcription for wind band in 1939.

Thomas C. Duffy wrote Michigan’s Motors as a tribute to the motor industry that flourishes today in Michigan. The piece’s title also hints at the motor rhythms that serve as the foundation for the music. Over the course of five movements, listeners will hear engines starting, cars racing, and trains roaring.

His Honor March is one of Henry Fillmore’s most popular works. Composed especially for Fillmore’s own band of professional musicians, the piece contains unexpected melodic and rhythmic changes that will keep audience members on the edges of their seats. 

Additional music:

Festival of Winds and Percussion (R. Jager), Elegy, Prayer, and Hymn (M. Camphouse), and Ballo del granduca (J. Sweelinck)

Neighborhoods: What is Working

How to Connect Neighborhood Churches to Your Local Community

Transcription of John and Peter's February 20, 2018 conversation with Paul Sparks, a leading voice in the growing Parish Movement. Paul has worked in more than 1,000 neighborhoods around the world to identify, connect, and support groups that want to have their neighborhoods flourish. In their conversation Paul talked about his own and his colleagues' work with local churches, academic institutions, and community organizations in the United States and abroad and offered ideas on how to translate their experiences into their listeners' own community-building work.

How a few plants, a mural, and less pavement could bring more to a neighborhood than one big ministry.

Government Innovation Isn’t Your Main Problem

An undue focus on making government more innovative might inhibit you from working with the innovation that is going on and the innovators who are doing it.

Our Kind of March Madness

Winter may be hanging on longer than expected (in some parts of the country), but at LISC, the month of March has blossomed like never before. In the last three weeks, we raised $68 million—from longstanding donors such as State Farm and Wells Fargo, through new partnerships with ProMedica, Union Pacific and the San Francisco Foundation, and with expanded public resources from the CDFI Fund and the city of Washington, DC. We’ll invest it. We’ll leverage it. We’ll use it to lift up underinvested neighborhoods and develop the skills of talented people in our neighborhoods. There’s still much to do to foster economic opportunity in our communities and we are grateful for this support, which helps us do the job. What a month it’s been. And we've still got a week to go!
