UGA Performing Arts Center

Please join us for The Hugh Hodgson School of Music’s first major concert of the 2017-2018 season where the Hodgson Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Cynthia Johnston Turner, evokes fire and ice on Friday, Sept. 1, at 8 p.m. The concert is a narrative from heat to ice, and more subtly, it is a commentary on climate change. The program features music 'globally' by composers from Japan, Europe, and the USA: a fact that emphasizes that we only have one home and it's in trouble... 

The concert also continues the Hodgson Wind Ensemble’s trend of mid-concert social media engagement. Concert attendees in designated “Tweet Seats” and online viewers—the concert will be streamed live—are encouraged to join an online discussion of the concert curated by conducting area graduate teaching assistants by using the #HWELive hashtag on Twitter.

Admission to the concert is free, but attendees are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the UGA Student Food Pantry. Information on the pantry’s mission and specific items it needs can be found at
