Is the time ripe for the return of Ulysses? In determining his life’s course, Ulysses Kay (1917-1995), received encouragement from his uncle, King Oliver, and William Grant Still. Among his teachers were Howard Hanson, Paul Hindemith, and Otto Luening. He also attended the American Academy in Rome. A longtime resident of Teaneck, NJ, he composed music in all genres. Sample Tromba for trumpet and piano, the Concerto for Orchestra, a suite from the semi-documentary The Quiet One, and Six Dances for String Orchestra. Ulysses strings his bow, this Sunday at 10 pm.
