Ulysses Kay: Twentieth Century Composer

Broadcast Music, Inc. > BMI Brochure


Returning to New York, Barbara taught music in Manhattan, and Ulysses accepted a position with Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) that would last from 1953 until 1968. Turning down several teaching positions, he preferred a job that gave him a regular schedule, allowing him to compose as much as possible. Compositions include: "A Lincoln Letter," an a cappella work for mixed chorus and bass soloist; "Six Dances for String Orchestra;" "Fantasy Variations for Orchestra;" and two operas, "The Boor," and "The Juggler of Our Lady."
