Neighborhood Music School celebrates centennial at and with Yale

The Symphonic Wind Ensemble played "Century Shouts" by Tom Duffy, commissioned by NMS in honor of its Centennial.World premieres of two works by Yale faculty were among the highlights of the concert marking the centennial of the Neighborhood Music School (NMS), held June 10 in Woolsey Hall.

The NMS commissioned the two works especially for the celebration: “Eventide” by Ingram Marshall, adjunct professor at Yale School of Music, and “Century Shouts” by Thomas C. Duffy, director of Yale bands, who is also an adjunct professor at the School of Music. The former was performed by the NMS’s Greater New Haven Youth Orchestra, the latter by the school’s Symphonic Wind Ensemble.

In another Yale tie, the event was hosted by Michael Morand, deputy chief communications officer, who notes that members of the Yale community have been involved in NMS since its beginning as teachers, students, and board members.
