Performing Arts Center, Hodgson Hall - 230 River Road, Athens, GA 30605

The University of Georgia’s premiere choral ensemble will perform in the Hugh Hodgson School of Music's next Thursday Scholarship Series concert. 

The program is made up of texts that are both sacred and secular, with many pieces written recently. The final piece by Benjamin Dawson, the UGA Hodgson Singers student composer-in-residence, will be premiered, as well as works by Howard Hanson and Ralph Vaughan Williams. The program features recently composed works by Pulitzer Prize winning composer Caroline Shaw, as well as works by other notable living American composers, Jake Runestad, Shawn Kirchner, Jocelyn Hagen and Matthew Hazzard. A particularly poignant part of the concert will feature choral transcriptions of three iconic and profound post-romantic solo songs by Richard Strauss, Claude Debussy, and Gustav Mahler, arranged by Stanley Hoffman, and each featuring current DMA piano student, Carlos Varela.

The concert is one of only two solo concerts that the UGA Hodgson Singers give each year in Hodgson Hall.
