Percy Grainger described his Lincolnshire Posy as a “bunch of musical wildflowers.” The work is based on folk songs collected in Lincolnshire, England, in 1905-06.

Country Band March, written by Yale’s own Charles Ives (1898), is a wonderful parody of the realities of performance by a country band. From its “out of tune” introduction to the pandemonium which reigns at the close, the March never fails to excite.

Edward Elgar dedicated his Enigma Variations “to my friends pictured within,” each variation being an affectionate portrayal of one of his circle of close acquaintances. This classic band arrangement by Earl Slocum is reminiscent of the mighty orchestral transcriptions that comprised the wind band repertoire of the early and middle 20th century.

Ernst Toch’s Spiel for Wind Orchestra was composed for the 1926 Chamber Music Festival in Donauseschingen, Germany. It is composed of three distinct movements: a lively, technical Ouverture; a peaceful, pastoral Idyll; and a light, three-part Buffo, named after the opera buffa–comic opera–of the 19th century. Toshiyuki Shimada, guest conductor.

Foreclosure Risk is Growing, With No Relief in Sight

Homeowners and small landlords are under mounting pressure, as lost income related to COVID-19 leaves them with month after month of unpaid debt and limited ability to catch up. The loss of wealth could impact the next generation and beyond, especially in communities of color, warns LISC’s Denise Scott. “Just as COVID-19 is having a disproportionate impact on the health of Black and Brown families, so too is it exacerbating our racial wealth gap, which already saps so much from our national potential.”

Unlocking Corporate Treasuries for Racial Equity: A Podcast with LISC's George Ashton

George Ashton III, who oversees LISC's Strategic Investments department, joined a recent episode of the podcast Money + Meaning to discuss LISC's Black Economic Development Fund. The conversation delved into the growth of CDFIs and their role in economic development and how more corporations can direct their capital towards systems change that promotes racial equity.

How CDFIs and the UN Can Align the Measure of their Common Goals

By adopting a set of universal benchmarks established by the United Nations—the UN Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs—Community Development Financial Institutions can streamline the way they measure and demonstrate the investments they've been making for decades to help create equity and wellbeing for people and places in the United States. A blog by LISC's Anna Smukowski and the OFN's Andrea Longton explains how and why.
