UGA Holiday Concerts on Dec. 1 and 2

Wednesday, November 30, 2016 - 10:29am

One of the great campus joys of the holiday season happens this week, when the UGA Symphony Orchestra (UGASO), Combined Choirs, British Brass Band and more—take to the stage for the annual UGA Holiday Concerts:

The concerts, part of the Hodgson School’s flagship Thursday Scholarship Series, open in grand fashion with the UGA Combined Choirs and UGASO performing holiday standards as well as works from Leroy Anderson, Gerald Finzi and Ralph Vaughan Williams. These performances will be among the largest the School stages throughout the year.

After intermission, the UGA British Brass Band leads the audience in a sing-along, filled with classic carols. A jazz combo follows, performing three jazz standards featuring Greg Hankins, frequent piano collaborator at the School of Music, and vocal soloist Tereska Grynia, a doctoral violin student.

The festivities come to a close with Randall Alan Bass’ “Gloria,” bringing the orchestra and choirs back on stage for a rousing finale to the concert.

Tickets are $25 and going very fast, so secure yours today. You'll be glad you did.
