Annual UGA Holiday Concert will return to Hodgson Concert Hall

The UGA Holiday Concert, an annual Athens tradition, will return to Hodgson Concert Hall for two special performances on Dec. 4 and 5 at 7:30 p.m.

The concert brings together hundreds of student musicians from the Hugh Hodgson School of Music for an evening of seasonal selections by the UGA Symphony Orchestra, the British Brass Band, the Jazz Band and choirs.

“The concert is one of the events that ushers in the holiday season here in Athens,” said Dale Monson, director of the Hodgson School. “It occupies a special place in our hearts and in university life.”

Tickets for the program, which is part of the Hugh Hodgson School of Music’s 2nd Thursday Scholarship Concert Series, are $25 for the general public, $5 for students. They can be purchased by calling the UGA Performing Arts Center box office at 706-542-4400 or visiting

Established in 1980, the 2nd Thursday Scholarship Series offers showcase performances by UGA students and faculty the second Thursday of each month throughout the academic year. Proceeds from individual ticket sales and season subscriptions help fund yearlong academic scholarships and assistantships for students and present donors the opportunity to sponsor individual students of the music school at several levels of giving.
