Free Admission

George Gershwin composed Cuban Overture after his 1932 visit to Havana. This exciting piece, filled with native percussion and Caribbean rhythms, embodies the spirit of Cuban dance.

Gustav Holst’s Second Suite in F is based on English folk songs and dance. Each of its four movements possesses its own distinctive character—from slow and tender to lively and complex—ending with a resetting of the well-known tune “Greensleeves”.

Byron Adams composed Ballade for Piano and Wind Orchestra in 1986 for the Yale Concert Band. It is comprised of two contrasting sections: a lyrical piano melody and a rapid, march-like theme. This performance will feature pianist David Molina YC ’15.

Richard Wagnerwrote Elsa’s Procession to the Cathedral, a piece filled with medieval color and pageantry, as part of his opera Lohengrin. John Bourgeois’s dramatic arrangement features the mighty Newberry Memorial Organ. 

 

…plus Apotheosis from Grand Symphonie for Band (Berlioz), Prelude in Dorian Mode (De Cabezon, arr. Grainger), and Folk Dances (Shostakovich, arr. Reynolds).

Combatting a Water Crisis with Entrepreneurship, and Heart

Jonathan Quarles is a Flint, MI small business owner who received a $10,000 grant from LISC and Verizon to help weather the pandemic's economic crisis. His business is a story worth telling: Quarles harvests and distributes clean water from the atmosphere, creating jobs, opportunity and "empowering the city that raised me" in the bargain.

In Pursuit of a Shared Humanity

LISC stands in unity with the protests that are sweeping our country, and their core message—that every life is sacred, says Maurice A. Jones, LISC’s president and CEO, in a video message. We are committed, he affirms, to continuing the work to dismantle structural racism and create an equitable America for all.

Our Communities Need a Marshall Plan

In his latest video message, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones reflects on the disproportionate health and economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on underinvested communities and communities of color, and calls for a 21st-century Marshall Plan—intensive and broad investment that will both help people and enterprises recover, and redress the inequities that set the stage for the fallout of the current crisis.
