The Performing Arts Center will present Red Priest on the Noontime Concert Series Nov. 11 at the Chapel. The concert is open free to UGA faculty, staff and students.

Red Priest is a unique Baroque quartet that has been compared in the press to the Rolling Stones, Jackson Pollock, the Marx Brothers and Cirque du Soliel. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette said, “Any group that can make you rethink a masterpiece and also make it fun is rare indeed.”

The Noontime Concert Series is a new program created by the Performing Arts Center for UGA employees and students. Each concert will feature musicians who are in Athens to perform for the classical music series at the Performing Arts Center as well as performers from UGA’s Hugh Hodgson School of Music.

The concerts begin at noon and last approximately 50 minutes. They are designed to encourage colleagues and students from across campus to come together and enjoy music during their lunch hour.
