Biographical Note

Jan Williams was born in Utica, New York in 1939. He earned his B.M. and M.M. degrees as a percussionist at Manhattan School of Music where he studied with Paul Price. Jan Williams came to Buffalo as a Creative Associate at the Center of the Creative and Performing Arts in 1964. He became a member of the University at Buffalo Music Faculty in 1967 and Co-Director of the Center in 1974. He has been a mainstay of the contemporary music scene, not only in Buffalo, but also internationally, as percussionist, conductor, administrator, and educator.

Composer Morton Feldman (1926-1987) joined the University at Buffalo Music Faculty in 1972. He was the Slee Professor, 1972-1973, Edgar Varèse Professor, 1975-1987, and the Director of the Center of the Creative and Performing Arts, 1976-1980. Feldman also established the June in Buffalo festival in 1975 at the University. Under his leadership the new festival was presented 1975-1978, and again in 1980, with a year off in 1979 when Feldman was on sabbatical.
