For the Living - Hodgson Singers and University Chorus
Hodgson Concert Hall UGA Performing Arts Center
All Ticketed Events
Ensemble Series

University Chorus will perform Dan Forrest’s “Requiem For the Living” with orchestra, conducted by Daniel Shafer. The lush and varied settings of traditional Requiem and biblical texts make for an impactful musical experience. The Hodgson Singers will present works by Jennifer Lucy Scott, Ken Burton, Dominic DiOrio, and more.



The international award-winning Hodgson Singers is UGA’s premier choral ensemble made up of many of the university’s most talented and dedicated singers, primarily advanced undergraduate and graduate students. Because of its more rigorous schedule of rehearsals and performances both on and off-campus throughout the year, this ensemble requires students to make a full-year commitment. The Hodgson Singers perform under the direction of Dr. Daniel Bara. In 2014, the UGA Hodgson Singers won the prestigious International Choral Competition Ave Verum in Baden, Austria. In May, 2023 The UGA Hodgson Singers were invited to compete in the 18th Marktoberdorf International Chamber Choir Competition against eleven other choirs where they were were awarded the highest level of achievement – Excellence at an International Level -  and  won the 2nd place prize.


The UGA University Chorus is UGA’s largest mixed choral ensemble  and is comprised of university students as well as faculty, staff, and Athens community members. Singing a wide variety of choral and choral/orchestral music, University Chorus often combines with several other UGA choirs to collaborate with the UGA Symphony Orchestra on major works.
