Event Description

Thomas C. Duffy, Music Director

Free Admission

The wildly innovative Karel Husa conceived of Les Couleurs Fauves (Vivid Colors) as a musical interpretation of the French Impressionist and Fauvist styles of painting. This evocative work explores the contrasting colors that a wind ensemble can produce.

Richard Strauss’s chamber piece Serenade for Winds helped to launch his career as a successful composer and conductor. The work’s long, arching melodic lines and rich harmonic textures would become part of his signature style.

Hiraizumi is University of New Haven composer Simon Hutchinson’s tribute to Japan’s idyllic World Heritage Site of the same name. This innovative work uses winds and electro-acoustical sound to evoke Hiraizumi’s special tranquility. This is a world premiere.

Cartoon is composer Paul Hart’s tribute to the Saturday morning cartoons that were an integral part of many children’s weekends. Listeners are sure to reminisce over the work’s dramatic opening credits, cat and mouse tease, and romantic interludes.

 

Additional music:

Festive Overture (Shostakovich), Danza de los Duendes (Galbraith), and And Flights of Angels Sing Thee to Thy Rest (Duffy).

Neighborhoods: What is Working

When Disaster Hits, Your First Responder Probably Will Not Be a First Responder

The FIRST assets in a disaster are neighbors. In fact, it turns out that while your neighbors have everything to do with your immediate chances in a disaster, your neighbors and their collective extended connections determine how well and how fast your community will recover.

Organizational Culture of Fear: The Shadow Side of US Culture

Don't let the title mislead you. Peter's intimate conversation with life, career and business coach CJ Liu is profound, touching and funny. Ostensibly a discussion of Peter's book Flawless Consulting, CJ says at the end, "We didn't talk about the book at all." Instead, the conversation ranged from personal transformation, integrating who you are with what you do and outlets for pain and rage to freedom, authenticity, courage and the power of co-creation--plus yoga, cartoons, parenting and much more.

The Problem With Problems

One of the reasons we may have so little productive citizen creativity at the local level is that people buy into the belief that the purpose of getting together is to deal with a problem. There is another purpose that is probably more important: engagement that mobilizes citizen creativity and contributions.

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.

Home for the Holidays, and for Good

This is the story of Michael Elliot, who was homeless and fighting cancer when his life took a sharp turn for the better. Through a unique partnership with ProMedica Health in Toledo, where he was receiving treatment, Elliot was introduced to a LISC Financial Opportunity Center. There, he worked with a financial coach, who helped him secure a safe, affordable apartment and even begin saving money—all within a few months. Said Elliot, “It’s the greatest thing in the world that I have a place to call home.”

Kindling Hope in a Chicago Neighborhood

You can feel the change, say residents. Police data show it, too. In just one year, crime and violence have dropped precipitously in Englewood, a Chicago neighborhood where LISC has long partnered with local leaders, according to an article in the Chicago Tribune. How did it change? A concerted mix of strategic policing and community engagement, says Julia Ryan, LISC’s VP for health & safety—the very approach LISC supports in Englewood and dozens of communities across the country.

LISC Pledges New Commitment to Health

LISC has invested deeply in the health and wellbeing of people in the places where we work for 40 years. But we’re upping the ante. President and CEO Maurice Jones calls partners to join us in upending health disparities through tailored investments in communities, and designing a plan to assess the health outcomes of our broad work in economic development, housing, safety and financial stability.
