Hugh Hodgson Faculty Series performance to feature bassoon

The Hugh Hodgson School of Music continues to showcase its talented faculty with its Faculty Series, which will feature Amy Pollard, professor of bassoon, in a performance Oct. 12 at 8 p.m.

Tickets are $10 each or $5 with a UGA student ID and can be purchased at the Performing Arts Center box office, by calling 706-542-4400 or by visiting

The series, which will take place each month in Ramsey Concert Hall at the Performing Arts Center, allows the faculty of the School of Music, many of whom are world-renowned performers, to express their talent outside of the classroom and studio.

Pollard’s program for the recital, “Strange Interludes,” includes works from the 19th and 20th centuries. 

“For this recital, I have chosen pieces that are all cohesive as single movements and all under 15 minutes in length,” Pollard said. “The first and last works are fairly traditional and the inner pieces each have an unique and interesting quality to them, from showcasing jazz elements to depicting a ritual performed by witches.”

With that variety, Pollard’s program aims to highlight the range and versatility of her instrument.
