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

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.
