The University of Georgia Hugh Hodgson School of Music opens the new year with its Faculty Artist Series on Jan. 14 at 7:30 p.m. in Ramsey Hall with associate professor of trombone, Josh Bynum. The concert will feature a program that detours from Bynum’s recent solo SEC recital tour to a program of chamber music.
Bynum wanted to shift gears with this recital to have the opportunity to play with his faculty colleagues in the Georgia Brass Quintet. A variety of settings will give the audience a nice contrast throughout the program, featuring the talents of Brandon Craswell, James Naigus, David Zerkel, and William F. and Pamela P. Prokasy Professor in the Arts Philip Smith.
“Chamber music is such a wonderful part of what we do, and being able to just enjoy making music with inspirational colleagues and friends is one of the very best things about life at the HHSOM,” said Bynum. Wrapping up his tenth year of teaching at the School of Music, Bynum decided to revisit his first Faculty Artist Series program, aptly named "Getting by with a Little Help from my Friends,” which is how he says he still feels about working at UGA.
Tickets for the performance are $12 for adults and $3 for students and children, and are available through the Performing Arts Center. They can be purchased online at pac.uga.edu, by calling 706-542-4400 or in person at the Box Office. For those unable to attend, live streaming will be available at music.uga.edu/live-streaming.
