Yale Band & Percussion Group bring music to Yamoransa schools


Thomas C. Duffy describes what a conductor does

The Yale Concert Band and Yale Percussion Group arrived yesterday at Cape Coast. This morning they visited the village of Yamoransa, with which Yale has an ongoing partnership.

Three groups of Yale musicians went into classrooms, where they introduced themselves and their instruments to Yamoransa students. Each band member explained the parts of the instrument and demonstrated how it works, and the students learned about woodwinds, brass, and percussion instruments. The band members then played the Yale fight song, with the Yamoransa students clapping along. MORE
