The Hugh Hodgson School of Music Thursday Scholarship Series concert features the Jazz Ensemble and Glee Clubs in Hodgson Hall on Nov. 18 at 7:30 p.m. The performance is part of the Spotlight on the Arts Festival.
The program opens with Jazz Ensemble I Big Band, which is Hodgson School’s advanced Jazz Ensemble, directed by Dave D’Angelo, Lecturer of Jazz. This group plays at a variety of events, both on and off campus, and is a key component of the Jazz Minor degree which is available to students via audition.
The second half of the program features both the Women’s and Men’s Glee Clubs, directed by J.D. Burnett, Associate Director of Choral Activities and Area Chair. They will present pieces about the symbolism of daytime, including works by Fine, Russo, Lange, Johnson and Walker.
“What a gift it has been to resume rehearsal and performance in the choirs at UGA after eighteen months of relative quiet! The Glee Clubs have hit the ground running and are eager to take the Hodgson Hall stage on November 18,” said Burnett.
Tickets to the concert are $20 for adults and $3 for students with a valid ID and can be purchased through the Performing Arts Center Box Office online, by calling 706-542-4400 or in person before the event. There will also be live streaming available via https://www.music.uga.edu/live-streaming. If joining in person, the Hodgson School strongly encourages patrons to wear a mask inside the halls and public spaces so that students and faculty can keep the music going.
