Honors Memory of Former Bandleader, Lee Herrington on February 21st

Musicians from SUNY Ulster and local ensembles will perform in memory of the college’s former band director to raise money for music scholarships at the annual Herrington Benefit Concert, Wednesday, February 21, 2018 at 7:30 p.m., in the Quimby Theater on the Stone Ridge campus.

The Lee Herrington Memorial Scholarship was created in honor of Lee Herrington, a dedicated musician and mentor, who is the former band director of SUNY Ulster; longtime Rondout Valley music teacher; and former director of the Kingston local American Federation of Musicians Concert Band.

Chris Earley, Associate Professor of Music, and SUNY Ulster Music Department Coordinator says, “The annual Lee Herrington Memorial Scholarship concert provides an excellent opportunity to enjoy several of the outstanding SUNY Ulster music ensembles.”

The Lee Herrington Memorial Scholarship is awarded annually through the Ulster Community College Foundation, Inc. and is funded by donations made at the concert. This scholarship is given to a student who is in enrolled in the Music Degree program and has participated in SUNY Ulster music or choral groups.

A suggested donation is accepted at the door: Adults $5, Students/Seniors $3, Family $10. The snow date for this event is February 28. For further information, please contact Christopher Earley at 845-688-1949 or earleyc@sunyulster.edu.

The Music program at SUNY Ulster is designed to provide students with foundation courses in music theory, music history, and applied music that will prepare them for transfer to bachelor’s degree programs for further study in music. The program is a core curriculum with a complementary selection of general education courses. This program is available for both part‐time and full‐time students.
