Music at Yale “Alumni Ventures” Brochure Design

The Music Department at Yale University asked Granite Bay Design to design their “Alumni Ventures” anniversary brochure. Supplied with a large number of high-quality photographs, Granite Bay Design set about sorting them, choosing the really outstanding ones to use large on the pages that started each section with two-year spans. As always, we worked closely with the client through all stages of design and production.

The following text is from Yale

Yale University “Alumni Ventures” Anniversary BookletAfter introducing the idea to selected alumni, faculty, and staff, Yale decided to launch the new program and call it alumniVentures. Alumni were invited to submit proposals that did not exceed two typed pages, and grants would be awarded to those projects that best followed one simple yet transcendent criterion: to advance the cause of music. This phrase is found with slightly altered wording on the original wall plaque recognizing the opening of Sprague Hall. A committee of alumni representing at least five different decades of alumni served as the selection committee.

Yale University “Alumni Ventures” Anniversary BookletIn the first year, over 300 proposals were received! While that number has diminished in ensuing years, alumniVentures has awarded 73 grants totaling over $350,000 in its first five years. These remarkably creative and diverse projects are described in this brochure along with updates. I believe you will be amazed and inspired by the ways in which YSM alumni are advancing the cause of music in all corners of the globe.

The success of alumniVentures is attributable to the passion and commitment YSM alumni have for music and humankind. Indeed, the grant recipients represent all who are part of our alumni community. Your leadership and service, along with the many contributions of our distinguished faculty and dedicated staff, have enabled countless thousands of people to be touched by the wonder of music.

Yale University “Alumni Ventures” Anniversary BookletYSM maintains a highly selective admission process, each year admitting approximately 100 students who come from prestigious American and international conservatories and universities to study with Yale’s distinguished faculty. A full tuition award and living stipend is given to all students who are admitted to the School.

Music is everywhere at Yale. Students perform and attend concerts in the University’s historic concert halls and world-class art galleries and libraries, collaborate meaningfully with peers across disciplines, and engage with New Haven’s creative community. With unsurpassed resources and state-of-the-art facilities, Yale helps students activate their imaginations and design their promising futures.

In New Haven, the Music in Schools Initiative allows School of Music students to share their expertise with young musicians in the New Haven Public Schools while supporting local music educators. The Initiative’s biennial Symposium on Music in Schools recently yielded the Declaration on Equity in Music for City Students.

In the summers, the Norfolk Chamber Music FestivalYale Summer School of Music offers the next generation of chamber musicians the chance to work with and perform alongside accomplished and esteemed artists in an idyllic setting.

Even after musicians graduate from the Yale School of Music, they are part of a growing community of alumni and friends that extends around the world.
