Event description: 

Yale Concert Band Special Concert, Thomas C. Duffy, Music Director. Works by Duffy, composer and Director of Yale University Bands since 1982, to celebrate his 40th year at Yale University. Feat. “Butterflies and Bees!,” “Power and Light,” “A+,” “Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel,” “And Flights of Angels Sing Thee to Thy Rest,” and a special showing of the Yale Concert Band’s 1993 performance of “Whispers of the Patriots,” Walter Cronkite, narrator.
In his 40 years at Yale, Duffy has combined his talents as a conductor and composer to weave the Yale Bands into the fabric of the New Haven Public Schools; regional, state, and national music education programs and conferences; and the world, through 19 international tours with the Yale Bands. The Grove Dictionary of American Music cites Duffy’s music: “His compositions have introduced a generation of school musicians to aleatory; the integration of spoken/sung words and ‘body rhythms’ with instrumental performance; and the pairing of music with political, social, historical, and scientific themes.”
