The Hugh Hodgson School of Music puts great emphasis on its large ensembles - the Symphony Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, the UGA Hodgson Singers - and for good reason. Our students are highly accomplished musicians who gain valuable pre-professional performance experience in these large ensembles, and you should catch them whenever you can.
But highly accomplished musicians in the school of music perform as soloists and in many other small and medium-sized groups, one of which is the UGA Jazz Band, conducted by Steve Dancz. The Jazz band will play concert on Fiday, jan. 13 at 8 p.m. in Hugh Hodgson Concert Hall. Tickets are $10 and $5 for students. it's a great opportunity to catch some live jazz music in Athens, which is somewhat rare, but also to get an idea of the breadth and variety of serious musicanship on campus. Special guest artist for this concert is renowned trumpeter Marcus Printup.
