SUNY Ulster's own chorus and instrumental music groups are well known in the area for their public presentations. Two or more concerts are scheduled each year. SUNY Ulster also hosts musical events presented by nationally known musicians and performers from the area and beyond.

The Music Department presents concerts during December as part of an annual holiday tradition, and concerts and recitals end the academic year in April and May.

Concert:

Thursday, September 8th 2016, 7:00p.m. Quimby Theater

Kevin Hays is internationally recognized as one of the premier jazz pianists of his generation. Many of his 15 recordings as leader have received critical acclaim from publications such as The New York Times, Downbeat Magazine and Jazz Times, as well as a “Coup de Coeur” from the Académie Charles Cros (France). A prolific sideman appearing on over 60 records, Hays’s long list of notable musical associations include records with Chris Potter, Joshua Redman, Nicholas Payton, and Al Foster.

Kevin’s performance will feature a combination of material from various sources and genres. Being an improviser, he decides on much of the program as he goes along, but it will likely include his original songs, spontaneous interpretations of jazz standards, and improvisations on classical, folk and blues themes. Kevin considers the audience to be a participant in the process and one can expect many delightful surprises along the way.
