Yale Concert Band presents “Honeycomb” with audience and cell phones

Sponsored by: Yale Concert Band

Cody Brookshire describes his work Honeycomb as “an aural experience unlike any other.” Through audio files mapped to their cell phones, audience members are connected to the stage musicians and one another, enabling them to “play” in synchronicity with the live ensemble.

Symphony in B-flat has been heralded as the turning point for the wind band genre. Paul Hindemith established the seriousness of the concert band as an artistic genre when he created this contemporary 20th-century piece, which has earned high critical acclaim.

An American classic, Percy Grainger’s jolly, folk-like Children’s March: “Over the Hills and Far Away” features heckelphone, a rare, double-reed instrument from the turn of the 20th century, purchased by the Yale Band from the New Haven Armory Band in the 1970s.

A Leonard Bernstein triptych: “Make Our Garden Grow” from Candide; Slava!; “Almighty Father Chorale” from Mass

Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky composed Dance of the Jesters as incidental music for the ballet The Snow Maidens. This lively piece captures the color and zest of Russian folk dance.
