2023: A Century of Women and the Carillon

Although the carillon tradition is five centuries old, women have only been full participants for about the past one hundred years. Tiffany’s research team has identified nearly 100 women active in various capacities before 1950. These trailblazing women were performing, teaching, composing, writing, and building carillons, yet they are missing from our accounts of carillon history. Tiffany’s team invites carillonists and their communities to help us change the stories we tell about the carillon to the public and to future generations.

The Ellington Fellowship at 50

In 2022, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Ellington Fellowship, which has brought world-class jazz musicians to Yale and New Haven since 1972. The Ellington Fellowship is a brainchild of Willie Ruff, the legendary horn player, bass player, teacher, author, and impresario. A Yale alumnus (B.M. ’53, M.M. ’54), Ruff joined the faculty of the Yale School of Music in 1971. He saw that the university needed to recognize the importance of the African-American jazz tradition, and he had the imagination, connections, charisma, and fund-raising prowess to make it happen on a grand scale.
