November 11, 2022

The Yager Museum of Art & Culture at Hartwick College is excited to bring live music to the galleries this Thursday, November 17, at 6 p.m. as local group Killdeer Trio performs, surrounded by the vivid concert photographs of the exhibition Front Row Center: Icons of Rock, Blues, and Soul.

Killdeer Trio is a genre-defying band specializing in original compositions and group improvisations that blend modern jazz, rock, folk, and hip-hop into a unique style that is accessible to all listeners. Performing amongst Larry Hulst’s striking photographs of music icons, the trio will draw inspiration and energy from the images to deliver an engaging and memorable concert. Killdeer Trio is comprised of Hartwick Music Department Faculty Wyatt Ambrose and Evan Jagels, and Cherry Valley-based drummer Sebastian Green.

The photos of legendary concert photographer Larry Hulst provide visitors an all-access pass to some of the most memorable musical performances ever captured on film. The exhibition features 75 photographic prints of everyone from Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix through B.B. King and Lauryn Hill. Front Row Center: Icons of Rock, Blues, and Soul is organized and toured by International Arts & Artists, Washington, DC.

Admission to Killdeer Trio’s concert at the Yager is free and the event is open to the public. All museum galleries will be open during the performance.
