Let’s Party!, the Hodgson Wind Ensemble continues the 2019-20 season with exciting and festive pieces to keep the party going. Come join the party and move to rhythms from Cuban to Greek and join us in the “Tweet Seats” to interact with the music in real time!


This concert features a piece written by our student composer, Kevin Day.  He had this to say about his piece Havana – “…I wanted to highlight different dance genres such as Salsa, Mambo, and Cha-Cha, while also making the piece in my own voice. I have a strong love for Latin music and so this was incredibly fun to write.”

The Hodgson Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Dr. Cynthia Johnston Turner, is the premiere performing ensemble of UGA Bands, having garnered an international reputation for its artistry, precision, sensitivity, and musicianship. The performance is scheduled for Tuesday, October 1st, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. in Hodgson Concert Hall. The concert is ticketed through the UGA Performing Arts Center ($6-12; available online: https://pac.uga.edu/; or by phone: 706.542.4400).
