Event Description

Yale Concert Band to feature Gioacchino Rossini’s William Tell Overture and Leonard Bernstein’s Three Dance Episodes from “On The Town”

Thomas C. Duffy, Music Director

Free Admission

Gioacchino Rossini’s William Tell Overture (trans. by Erik W. G. Leidzén) is often considered to be the composer’s masterpiece. In this opening to Rossini’s opera about thirteenth-century Switzerland, one hears the lake, the beginning rain, the violent tempest, the clearing and emergence of the sun, and finally the famous fanfare.

The five parts of Darius Milhaud’s Suite Francaise contain excerpts from French folk songs and are named after the French provinces in which the American and Allied armies fought together during World War II: Normandy, Brittany, Ile-de-France, Alsace-Lorraine, and Provence.

Fred Cohen wrote Gabrieli Infusion in honor of the 400th anniversary of Giovanni Gabrieli’s death. The piece employs exciting metric modulation and is scored so as to highlight the many choirs within the wind ensemble.

Leonard Bernstein’s Three Dance Episodes from “On The Town” (trans. by Marice Stith) are drawn from the composer’s musical about three sailors who spend a day in New York City and discover love. The piece’s movements reflect the choreographic attributes of the three sailors. 

…plus O Magnum Mysterium (Lauridsen) and Thunder and Blazes (Fučik).

Building the Skills & Confidence to Land a Good Job: One Woman's Journey

Volunteers of America Texas (VOATX) in Houston is one of more than 40 community-based partners nationwide using LISC’s Bridges to Career Opportunities model. LaSonya Bishop, VOATX’s Regional Director of Workforce, explores what it takes to help unemployed and underemployed people build their skills and find good-paying jobs – a task that is more challenging than ever with the pandemic. She does so through the lens of a Houston resident named Tamara, who overcame addiction and homelessness to graduate from a VOATX training program and get a job as a phlebotomist, which she has maintained since Covid-19 hit our shores. This is just one of many success stories catalyzed by LISC’s partnership with the Citi Foundation.
