Athens, Ga. - The University of Georgia Performing Arts Center has rescheduled the Igudesman and Joo performance for April 7 at 3 p.m. in Hodgson Concert Hall. The comic duo's original Jan. 29 performance had to be rescheduled when Aleksey Igudesman was injured while on tour. Tickets issued for Jan. 29 will be honored for the April 7 performance.

Violinist Igudesman and pianist Hyung-ki Joo combine humor with classical music and popular culture in a never-ending quest to turn the world's most esteemed concerts halls into standing room only comedy clubs.

Igudesman and Joo have picked up the mantle of legendary humorists Victor Borge and P.D.Q. Bach and given it a third millennium makeover. Like their predecessors, they are serious musicians who enjoy knocking the stuffy out of staid classical performances. As a result, Igudesman and Joo have become an Internet sensation, with over 28 million YouTube viewers.

The duo's "A Little Nightmare Music" has played to packed houses around the world.

Tickets for Igudesman and Joo are $39 with special discounts for UGA students. Tickets can be purchased online at pac.uga.edu or by calling the Performing Arts Center box office at 706/542-4400 or toll free at 888/289-8497.

Doris M. Ramsey and Katherine Trussell Wilson are the performance underwriters.
