The Union College Music Department will host a celebration of life for Hilary Tann (1947-2023) in her beloved Taylor Music Center - Emerson Auditorium on Saturday, April 29, 2 to 4p.m.

A reception will follow in the Burns Gallery in Feigenbaum Center for Visual Arts.

“We envision a gathering during which Hilary’s former colleagues and students can come together and reflect on her amazing impact on the Union College community,” said Jennifer Matsue, professor and chair of Music.

In-person attendance will be limited to the Union College community, including alumni, due to room capacity.

The event will be livestreamed on a webinar.

In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts can be made to the Hilary Tann Music Fund to expand the musical experience of our students.

Professor Tann, an internationally-known composer and a beloved and engaging mentor and colleague, passed away Feb. 8, 2023.
