The Hugh Hodgson School of Music Thursday Scholarship Series presents a collaborative concert designed by guitar faculty Daniel Bolshoy Feb. 13 at 7:30 p.m. in Hodgson Hall:

The friends joining Bolshoy will include the ARCO Chamber Orchestra, along with faculty members Levon AmbartsumianDavid StarkweatherKristin JutrasShakhida Azimkhodjaeva, and Milton Masciadri.

The program will include Latin music by composers such as Agustin Barrios from Paraguay, who composed a beautiful solo guitar piece that is flowing and lyrical, as well as some bossa-nova and Brazilian rhythms for guitar and bass.

Also included in the program is a quintet for a guitar and string quartet by Italian composer Mario Castelnuovo Tedesco. His music inspired John Williams and many other Hollywood composers so much that a recent movie entitled “The Maestro” was written about his life.

Also featured will be two pieces by living Russian composer Efrem Podgaits: a guitar concerto for guitar and orchestra, and a duo for violin and guitar written especially for Levon Ambartsumian and Bolshoy.

Tickets for the concert are $20 for adults and $3 for students. Streaming will be available for this concert online atmusic.uga.edu/live-streaming. For all up-to-date concert information, please visit ugamusiccalendar.com.
