The University of Georgia Contemporary Chamber Ensemble celebrates the life of Don C. Gillespie (1936-2019). A graduate of the UGA School of Music (now Hugh Hodgson School of Music), Gillespie worked for the prestigious international music publishing house C. F. Peters for 31 years where he championed the work of 20th Century composers such as John Cage, George Crumb, John Becker, and countless others. CCE honors his life-long advocacy for new music with a concert of 20th-Century masterworks.
