Hugh Hodgson School of Music students have the opportunity to make music in a variety of settings, including superb chamber groups and large ensembles. Some of the finest musical performances in Georgia take place right here on campus, with recitals and concerts by the school's performing organizations, faculty, guest artists, and students rounding out a robust and ambitious schedule of over 350 events annually.
Hodgson School ensembles appear on the stages of leading national festivals, and the close relationship with university broadcasting creates a strong presence on Georgia public television and radio. Frequent tours take UGA ensembles throughout the world. The Wind Ensemble has presented concerts in Argentina, Switzerland, and France. The ARCO Chamber Orchestra performed in the Venetian opera house, La Fenice, for an internationally televised UNESCO event. Opera Theatre students sang in a full schedule of summer performances in Greece.
