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.
