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).

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.

A Market That Kindles Culture and Commerce

In St. Paul, MN, a summer celebration of arts and entrepreneurship, modeled on night markets in Asia, has galvanized commerce and culture along University Avenue. LISC's longtime partner, the Asian Economic Development Association, is leading the charge to revitalize the district, where Southeast Asian residents and businesspeople have incorporated a "a Minnesota twist."

How Arts and Culture Can Catalyze Rural Development

In an interview for Rural Voices, a publication of the Housing Assistance Council, Bob Reeder, Rural LISC's director for national programs, discusses the importance of inclusion, diversity and economic equity when bringing arts and culture into community development efforts. With those key ingredients, creative placemaking can be a winning proposition for rural revitalization.

What a Farmers Market Can Do

In honor of National Farmers Market Week (August 6 to 12), we’re recognizing the extraordinary markets that LISC has helped launch, grow and support, and how much good they bring to their communities.
