Thursday Scholarship Concert honors Women’s History Month

In celebration of Women’s History Month, the faculty, students and alumni of the Hugh Hodgson School of Music bring to the stage Woman to Woman, the next performance in the Thursday Scholarship Series, on Thursday, March 29, at 7:30 p.m. in Hodgson Concert Hall.

“Women’s history will come alive in this concert,” says faculty member and harpist Monica Hargrave, who decided last year she wanted to present a concert during Women’s History Month that would showcase UGA faculty and students – performers and composers at a local and global level. “These women play a vital role in our lives with their contributions, dreams, and accomplishments,” says Hargrave.

In addition to Hargrave, the evening will feature performances by The Yargo Trio, featuring faculty members Angela Jones-Reus, flute; Connie Frigo, saxophone; and Liza Stepanova, piano. Other faculty performers include Amy Pollard, bassoon; Maggie Snyder, viola; Jean Martin-Williams, horn; Martha Thomas, piano; Kathryn Wright, voice; and Catherine Kilroe-Smith, horn.

Alongside the faculty, several HHSOM students will also perform: Taylor Lents, marimba; Serena Schibelli, violin; Alissa Benkoski, soprano. Also performing will be Kitchen Sync, a trio composed of Kilroe-Smith and musicians Akiko Iguchi on piano and UGA alumna Katherine Emeneth on the flute. Vivian Doublestein will also be accompanying on the piano.
