The UGA Performing Arts Center will present the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra March 22 at 3 p.m. in Hodgson Concert Hall. Jacomo Bairos will conduct the concert, which will feature guest guitarist Milos Karadaglic. The program will include the Suite No. 2 from Manuel de Falla’s Three-Cornered Hat, Joaquin Rodrigo’s concerto for guitar “Fantasia for a Gentleman” and Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition.”
Tickets, which are $25-$62 and discounted for UGA students, can be purchased at the Performing Arts Center box office, online at pac.uga.edu or by calling 706-542-4400.
Bairos has been praised by Germany’s Leipziger Volkszeitung as an “impressive conductor … who is elegantly demanding.”
In 2013, he became the Amarillo Symphony’s 17th music director and conductor. Bairos is also in demand as a guest conductor across the U.S. and abroad, annually working with ensembles such as the Florida Orchestra, the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra and the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, in addition to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
A native of Montenegro, Karadaglic burst onto the international music scene when Deutsche Gramophone released his first commercial solo album in 2011.
The Performing Arts Center will offer a pre-concert lecture at 2:15 p.m. that is open free to the public.
