Event Description

Thomas C. Duffy, Music Director

Ralph Vaughan Williams composed English Folk Song Suite for British military band in 1924. This three-movement piece is based entirely on folk songs and reflects the composer’s lifelong interest in and research on English folk songs.

Aegean Festival Overture reflects the Greek origin of its composer, Andreas Makris. With its opening driving energy and subsequent lyric plaintiveness, this piece epitomizes Makris’ musical style – a blend of classical form and Greek folkloristic elements.

 

The title Hymn for World Peace came from composer David Maslanka’s simple idea that if we want world peace, we can begin as individuals to ask for it. This gorgeous work was premiered in May 2015.

 

Joaquin Rodrigo’s Adagio for Wind Orchestra creates a Spanish ambiance – evocative harmonies and fanciful tunes instill in listeners the flair and melancholy inherent in Spanish folk music.

 

Resonances I is a “surround” piece in which composer Ron Nelson positions the trumpets and trombones around the hall or in the balcony, with the remaining performers onstage, resulting in the audience’s complete immersion in the varying textures of the piece.

The Open Streets Project has undergone some changes over the last year.

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.
