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)

“A Heart for Responding to Challenges” and a Commitment to Small Business Recovery: Q&A with Janice Dupré of Lowe’s

Janice Dupré is executive vice president of human resources for Lowe’s. In the interview that follows, she talks about what motivated Lowe’s to make its extraordinary $55 million commitment for small business relief grants, and she describes why the company intentionally prioritized small businesses that face barriers to capital access, including those located in rural communities and led by diverse owners, including women.

LISC + Lowe’s: A COVID Response That Buoyed 2,782 Small Businesses

Over the past 10 months, a $55 million commitment from Lowe’s enabled LISC to deploy emergency relief and resiliency grants to nearly 2,782 small businesses, mostly minority- and women-owned enterprises, in rural and urban communities all across the country. That translates into thousands of livelihoods, jobs and business ecosystems still intact through the economic fallout of the pandemic.
