Yale Brass Quintet to Perform at Hooker Elementary School


New Haven, Conn. — Yale graduate music students will perform a lively concert for the children of New Haven’s Hooker Elementary School on November 28 at 1:30 p.m., as part of an educational outreach program funded by the Yale Class of 1957.

Reporters are welcome to cover this event by contacting John Miller at the email address above.

The concert will feature a piece composed by Marco Antonio Flores-Villanueva to accompany a reading of Michael Catchpool’s whimsical picture book, “Where There’s A Bear, There’s Trouble.” Other pieces on the program are Witold Lutoslawski’s “Mini Overture” and J.S. Bach’s “My Spirit Be Joyful.”

The members of the brass quintet are all graduate students from the Yale School of Music and participants in the Class of ’57 Music Education Project: Tom Bergeron and Aaron Hodgson, trumpets; Jocelyn Carr, French horn; John Sipher, trombone; and Alan Carr, bass trombone.

“We are thrilled and proud that our projects and concerts have been creating a positive impact on our New Haven music students,” says John Miller, outreach manager for the Class of ’57 Music Education Project.

Through this innovative program, students and faculty from Yale’s School of Music go into the public schools of New Haven to encourage a love for music and to use music to reinforce reading and math skills. The program provides concerts and classes for children both in their schools and on the Yale campus. The outreach program also provides professional development for the school district’s music faculty.
