Celebrating Coeducation at Yale – 50 Years of Women in Yale College/150 Years of Women in Yale Professional Schools

The Yale Concert Band’s program will include Dragon Rhyme by Koussevitzky Fellow Chen Yi and Fanfare Ritmico by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Jennifer Higdon. The U.S. Coast Guard Band will perform Early Light(Carolyn Bremer); Knoxville: Summer of 1915(Samuel Barber), MU1 Megan Weikleenget, soprano; Gallant Seventh March (J.P. Sousa), and Armed Forces Medley(arr. MUC Sean Nelson). The bands will combine for the second half to perform Symphony No. 3 by James Barnes.

 

The United States Coast Guard Band was organized in March 1925 with the assistance of Lt. Charles Benter, leader of the United States Navy Band; Dr. Walter Damrosch, conductor of the New York Philharmonic; and “American March King” John Philip Sousa, former director of the United States Marine Band. The duties of the Band have greatly expanded since 1925. Originally a small command band used primarily for local purposes, today the Coast Guard Band is the proud musical representative of the United States Coast Guard and the Department of Homeland Security, appearing at presidential and cabinet level functions on formal and informal occasions. Lt. Cmd. Adam Williamson (pictured) joined the U.S. Coast Guard Band in 2003 on tenor saxophone and was a featured soloist on multiple occasions. Since becoming director in October 2013, Williamson has led the Coast Guard Band in performances for President Trump, President Obama, members of congress, DHS secretaries and Coast Guard leadership. The Coast Guard Band performed for the 2015 National Tree Lightning in Washington D.C., sharing the stage with celebrities Reese Witherspoon, Trombone Shorty, and Andra Day.
