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 atmusic.uga.edu/streaming—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 ugapantry.weebly.com.
