According to a recent email from Byron Hanson, archivist at Interlochen Center for the Arts, Ulysses Kay visited Interlochen in April, 1968. "He was here for a few days, possibly as much as a week participating in a symposium, "Creativity in the Arts and Sciences", that Karl Haas devised. He worked with our composers, and may have heard performances of his works by our band and/or orchestra on the weekends before or following the symposium. The band played his "Short Suite" and the orchestra played his "Fantasy Variations", and the orchestra repeated the work on three off-campus appearances that spring in Holland, Michigan; Elkhart, Indiana; and at Orchestra Hall in Chicago."
