UGA Performing Arts Center invites patrons to Make It an Evening

The University of Georgia Performing Arts Center is inviting patrons to Make It an Evening for select concerts during the 2012-2013 season. In addition to the ongoing pre-concert lectures, the Performing Arts Center has initiated a new series with the Georgia Museum of Art to provide pre-concert tours of the museum as well.

“I am pleased to offer our patrons this added bonus by partnering with our colleagues at the Georgia Museum of Art,” said Performing Arts Center Director George Foreman. “It is a lovely way to encourage ticket holders to enjoy a total arts experience on the UGA campus.”

The museum, which is located adjacent to the Performing Arts Center, will be open for dessert and gallery tours prior to four concerts: the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra on Nov. 1, The English Concert on Feb. 19, James Galway’s Legacy Tour on March 7, and Béla Fleck and the UGA Symphony Orchestra on March 26.

The Performing Arts Center also will continue its long-running Pre-Concert Lecture Series, which offers insights into the music and performers. The Pre-Concert Lecture Series is held in Ramsey Concert Hall or the Fine Arts Theatre 45 minutes prior to each performance and is free and open to the public.

The 2012-2013 lectures cover the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra on Nov. 1, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra on Nov. 4, the State Ballet Theatre of Russia on Jan. 15 and 16 in Fine Arts, the Venice Baroque Orchestra on Jan. 27, The King’s Singers on Feb. 11, The English Concert on Feb. 19, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra on Feb. 24, From the Top on March 3, James Galway’s Legacy Tour on March 7, pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii on March 19, and Béla Fleck and the UGA Symphony Orchestra on March 26.
