Yale Concert Band Performs Music by Aaron Copland and Others
The Yale Concert Band will feature music from around the world and premiere a composition by a Yale College undergraduate at its performance on Wednesday, November 19, at 7:30 p.m. in Woolsey Hall, corner of College & Grove streets.
The concert is free and the public is welcome.
Under the direction of Thomas C. Duffy and with special guest conductor Eduardo Ostergren of the University of Campinas, Brazil, musical selections will include compositions by Aaron Copland, H. Owen Reed and Cesar Guerra-Peixe.
Over the course of the evening, the Yale musicians will perform pieces representing various traditions from the sounds of Mexico and the ancient Aztecs in H. Owen Reed’s “La Fiesta Mexicana” to the characteristically American motifs of Aaron Copland. The band will also premiere “Grooves and Ruts,” a piece exploring the elements of contemporary pop music, composed by Yale sophomore, Stephen Feigenbaum.
Guest conductor Eduardo Ostergren will conduct the Yale Concert Band in “Museu da Inconfidência” by César Guerra-Peixe. Museu is a musical portrait of important events in Brazilian history in a distinct folk style.
