ARCO Chamber Orchestra, the internationally recognized string chamber ensemble led by Regents Professor and Franklin Professor of VIolin Levon Ambartsumian, performs its fall concert. ARCO returns to Hodgson Hall following a successful summer tour of Brazil.
Three master concert artists perform keyboard works of the giants of Western music—Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms—on historic instruments. Kenneth Weiss, harpsichordist, plays Bach. Eric Zivian, one of America’s foremost fortepiano specialists, plays Beethoven. Jon Nakamatsu, 1997 Van Cliburn Gold Medalist, performs Brahms on the Steinway grand.

Summer was made for outdoor concerts – and so were the amphitheater and terraced lawns in the Flower Garden of the State Botanical Garden of Georgia at the University of Georgia. Now in its 16th season, the Sunflower Music Series has placed both world-renowned and new-on-the-scene musicians in a world-class botanical environment. Originally formed in 1993, String Theory plays old time, bluegrass and Americana music. While the lineup has evolved and changed throughout its history, the band has consistently been made up of some of Athens' finest acoustic musicians.
