The final concert in the 2015-2016 Second Thursday Scholarship Series puts one of the UGA Hugh Hodgson School of Music’s newest and most active ensembles on display, the UGA British Brass Band, in Hugh Hodgson Concert Hall on April 14 at 7:30 p.m.
The program, dubbed “Rhapsody in Brass,” aims to showcase the collective and individual strengths of the band by pairing brass band standards with solo features.
Tickets are $18, $5 with a UGA student ID and are available at pac.uga.edu, by calling 706-542-4400 or by visiting the Performing Arts Center box office.
The ensemble, UGA’s newest brass and percussion ensemble, sets itself apart with a different, more dynamic sound that originates from the instruments’ unique construction.
The group has worked hard to establish a name for itself, with notable recent performances at last year’s UGA Holiday Concert, the Performing Arts Center’s Saturday Morning Club and the Chick-fil-A corporate headquarters’ Christmas open house.
