Master composer/soprano Gilda Lyons’stunning La Flor Más Lindawas composed as a response to the September 2018 march on the Nicaraguan dictatorial Ortega government. Ms. Lyons joins the Concert Band as soloist in Labyrinth of Love(Michael Daugherty), which celebrates the varied emotions of life, including despair and hope, through the poetry and prose of women throughout history. http://www.gildalyons.com
Germaine Tailleferrewas the only female member of Les Six, a group of young composers who, with Cocteau’s encouragement, rebelled against the impressionistic “fog” and the “pathos” of Wagner. Her Ouvertureis the opener for her opera, Il était un Petit Navire, the farcical story of cannibalism on a ship adrift at sea!
The five movements of Suite Française(Darius Milhaud) celebrate the folk tunes of provinces where American and Allied forces fought alongside the French underground during WWII. The incorporation of these melodies reinforces the idea of hope – which is the basis of freedom.

The Inflation Reduction Act, a sweeping health care, climate and tax package signed into law in August, presents groundbreaking opportunities to combat environmental injustices. LISC’s Mark Kudlowitz examines how the new law can impact community development and revitalize communities that have long suffered disproportionate impacts from climate change.
An article on NBCNews.com looks at how systemic racism, not to mention inflation and supply chain issues, continue to throw roadblocks in the way of Black entrepreneurs, and how LISC and other supporters are helping small businesses triumph over them. LISC’s Steve Hall, and two entrepreneurs who are benefiting from LISC support, weigh in.
LISC announced it has closed with Boston Children’s Hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and BayCoast Bank on a new growth capital fund that will invest in growing businesses owned by Black, Latino, and Indigenous entrepreneurs and other people of color.
