Event Description

Yale Concert Band Season Opener to feature Rossini's Semiramide and Grantham's J'ai été au bal

Thomas C. Duffy, Music Director

Donald Grantham’s J’ai été au bal (I went to the dance) celebrates Cajun folk music and the New Orleans street band tradition. To evoke a dance flavor, the piece employs two traditional Cajun dance tunes, “Allonds danser, Colinda” (“Let’s go dancing, Colinda”) and “Les fammes d’enfer” (“The flames of hell”).

The Overture to Semiramide opens what is considered to be one of Gioachino Rossini’s masterworks. Sparkling and dynamic, the piece is a dramatic beginning to an opera filled with betrayal and murder. V.F. Safranek created this thrilling transcription for wind band in 1939.

Thomas C. Duffy wrote Michigan’s Motors as a tribute to the motor industry that flourishes today in Michigan. The piece’s title also hints at the motor rhythms that serve as the foundation for the music. Over the course of five movements, listeners will hear engines starting, cars racing, and trains roaring.

His Honor March is one of Henry Fillmore’s most popular works. Composed especially for Fillmore’s own band of professional musicians, the piece contains unexpected melodic and rhythmic changes that will keep audience members on the edges of their seats. 

Additional music:

Festival of Winds and Percussion (R. Jager), Elegy, Prayer, and Hymn (M. Camphouse), and Ballo del granduca (J. Sweelinck)

The Good Word on How Faith-based Groups Are Turning Land into Homes

An in depth feature on Curbed.com details how mission-based groups, especially churches, are skilling up to turn their under-used land into affordable housing and other facilities their communities desperately need. And LISC initiatives in San Antonio, New York and the Bay Area are leading the charge. “Churches really feel the impact of the displacement issue in their communities,” says LISC Bay Area’s Laurel Engbretson in the article. “There’s a higher level of energy to get involved in this, because they understand the larger market context.”

Putting Faith in a Local—and Ingenious—Solution for Affordable Housing

LISC’s New York Land Opportunity Program is helping churches and other mission-driven groups scale the steep learning curve that leads to developing affordable housing on their land. Three years in, the effort is making promising inroads into the city’s affordable housing crisis, and inspiring similar initiatives in communities across the country.
