Event Description

Thomas C. Duffy, Music Director 

Wine-Dark Sea is John Mackey’s dramatic setting of Odysseus’ journey home following the Trojan War. This piece details the trials of humanity as experienced by Odysseus, beginning with a triumphal march as he begins his voyage home, his ship overflowing with the spoils of war. Odysseus then falls in love with Kalypso, only to abandon her as he continues his journey, venturing to the gates of the underworld. Mackey’s virtuosic work provides a full spectrum of the human experience as seen through the eyes of Odysseus.

 

Thomas C. Duffy’s Three Places in New Haven features Jisu Jung (Yale School of Music, ’19MM) on marimba, in a work that addresses three places frequented by renowned composer and Connecticut native Charles Ives, Yale class of 1898, during his time at Yale. The piece begins with the character Rollo studying in Yale’s library before moving to sail at the Long Wharf, and finally ending with a march through the city, in a style reminiscent of Ives’ Country Band March.

 

Outdoor Overture confirms the milestone in Aaron Copland’s career, where his work changed from bold tonal pieces to diatonic melodic writing. This version was created in the 20th century, exclusively for bands by Copland himself, based off the original orchestral work created for the High School of Music and Art in New York City.

 

Percy Grainger’s Colonial Song is about his native Australia, expressing “a certain kind of emotion that seems not untypical of native-born colonials in general.” In the early 20th century, Grainger wrote on colonials, saying “Perhaps it is not unnatural that people living more or less alone in vast virgin countries and struggling against natural and climactic hardships … should lean largely [to] patiently yearning, inactively sentimental wistfulness.”

Neighborhoods: What is Working

Associating Associations: The Power of Convening

While many institutions are interested in enabling neighborhoods, they tend to focus on interventions and see convening as a means to their ends. An even more productive function could be to act as a neutral convener.

A Grocery Store Stocks Fresh Food, and Jobs, in a Toledo Community That Can Use Both

Mark Zaitona, who immigrated from Iraq 20 years ago, has created three grocery stores—in Flint and Detroit, MI, and now in Toledo, OH—that bring fresh food, quality jobs and commercial vitality to communities deemed food deserts. An ABC news story profiles his latest enterprise and features Toledo LISC's Kim Cutcher (LISC has invested in two of the stores), who brought an $800,000 below-market loan to the project.

LISC CEO to Congress: Here’s What Opportunity Zones Need To Succeed

Maurice A. Jones testified before the Joint Economic Committee of Congress this week, urging its members to implement Opportunity Zones in ways that will truly benefit Americans in underinvested communities. The policy can spur billions in private investment in the country’s most distressed census tracts and play a major role in closing the opportunity gap, he said. But we need federal tax incentives and other strategies to help the program succeed.

Crowdfunding + LISC Give Small Businesses a Big Boost

Small businesses are a major dynamo of innovation and growth in our economy—they make up more than 99 percent of U.S. enterprises and create two out of every three new jobs. A partnership between LISC and the crowdfunding platform Kiva is connecting small business entrepreneurs across the country with the capital and knowhow they need to succeed.
