Each year the School hosts nearly 350 public performances.  

As one of the rising national leaders in music schools today, the Hodgson School boasts facilities among the finest in the country. The Performing and Visual Arts Complex—which includes the Hugh Hodgson School of Music, Performing Arts Center, Georgia Art Museum, and Lamar Dodd School of Art—is located on UGA’s East Campus and reflects the university’s long-term commitment to the arts.
