These social distanced concerts present a slate of both major national and local talent in concerts ranging from jazz to baroque and new music.

The UB Faculty Jazz Quartet (Bobby Militello - sax and flute; George Caldwell - piano; Sabu Adeyola - bass; John Bacon - drums) features some of the most experience jazz musicians in the WNY area. Their credits include Dave Brubeck, Ahmad Jamal, Maynard Ferguson, Count Basie and the Duke Ellington Orchestera. The group performs music from the Great American Songbook and jazz standards.
