Thomas C. Duffy directs the Yale Concert Band in the beginning of their Centennial season. This performance will feature the following pieces: Leonard Bernstein (born 1918) created West Side Story as the musical retelling of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, set amid the tensions of rival social groups in modern New York City. This lively transcription of Symphonic Dancesis a favorite among concert band musicians and is being performed tonight, commemorating what would have been Bernstein’s 100th year. Oliver E. Story’s Yankee Division March celebrates and honors the members of the 26th Infantry Division for their service in World War I. Comprised of soldiers from New England and based outside of Boston, Massachusetts, this was the second American division to reach the Western front during the war. Story composed this piece at the end of 1918, following the end of World War I. James Reese Europe & His Society Orchestra (1914) represents the bridge between the American brass band and the coming Jazz Age born at the end of World War I. As the Yale University Bands enter their centennial season, they remember the century with the favored march of the ensemble, Down the Field (1904). A celebration of Yale traditions and spirit, this piece represents the history of the university. Additional music: Agincourt Hymn (Daniel Bukvich), Decoration Day (Charles E. Ives), Handel in the Strand (Percy Aldridge Grainger).
