On May 14, join the a cappella group Voctave at Hodgson Concert Hall for a rousing program called “The Corner of Broadway and Main Street.” This evening of Broadway show tunes and Disney melodies is aimed to please music lovers of all ages.

Voctave has had more than 150 million social media views of their videos, and their latest album, “The Spirit of the Season, Deluxe Edition,” reached No. 6 on the Billboard charts. Their previous album, “The Corner of Broadway & Main Street Vol. 2,” debuted at No. 3 on the iTunes charts.

Formed in 2015 by producer and arranger Jamey Ray, the voices that bring these arrangements to life represent a wealth of diverse backgrounds and musical experiences. Hailing from Central Florida, the 11 members of Voctave have performed across the globe and appear on countless recordings. The group has performed with Grammy, Dove and American Music Award recipients including Sandi Patty, Pentatonix’s Kirstin Maldonado, Mark Lowry, David Phelps and Jody McBrayer.

The UGA Performing Arts Center’s historic 25th anniversary season is nearly at its end. On May 19, at 7:30 p.m., banjo wizards Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn perform a concert that was repeatedly rescheduled during the pandemic. They have been hailed as “the king and queen of the banjo” by Paste magazine.

Fleck is a 15-time Grammy Award-winning icon who has taken his instrument to new places across multiple genres. Washburn is a singer-songwriter and clawhammer banjo star who has radicalized her instrument by combining its sounds with Eastern influences. Together they won a 2016 Grammy for their album “Béla Fleck And Abigail Washburn. “

Tickets for Fleck and Washburn’s postponed concerts on Oct. 24, 2021; Feb. 6, 2021; and May 9, 2020, will be honored for this performance. Contact the Performing Arts Center box office for more information.

For all UGA Presents performances, 25 tickets are available for just $25, to mark the 25th anniversary of the Performing Arts Center. Tickets for UGA students are always $10.
