Printer-friendly version

Congratulations to world-renowned double bassist Milton Masciadri, a professor in the University of Georgia Hugh Hodgson School of Music, has been named a University Professor – an honor bestowed selectively on UGA faculty who have had a significant impact on the university in addition to fulfilling their normal academic responsibilities.

Masciadri was nominated for the award by colleagues in the Hodgson School of Music who noted his accomplishments on and off campus, which range from developing a robust program for double-bass students to coordinating the school’s international programs and study abroad to performing in major venues in this country and around the world.

“Professor Masciadri represents the very best of what a University of Georgia senior faculty member should be: someone who has developed an international reputation but has not lost sight of his responsibilities to his own campus and students,” said Jere Morehead, UGA senior vice president for academic affairs and provost.

A well-deserved honor for Dr. Masciadri and a point of pride for all students and faculty in the Hodgson School of Music.
