Spring is officially here, which always means that there's plenty to take in around Georgia College. Three different concerts are scheduled between this afternoon and the end of the month:

  • " Monday, March 21 –  Guest artist and mezzo-soprano, Dr. Tana Field, will perform at Georgia College at 7:30 p.m. in Max Noah Recital Hall. Accompanied by faculty pianist Dr. Owen Lovell, Field’s performance will reflect human experience and hope, spanning all shades of mood from serious and melancholy to triumphant and humorous. Pieces range from 17th-century opera aria to 21st-century cabaret. They reflect a longing for freedom from isolation, the closure of old chapters and new beginnings. Field serves as professor of music at Murray State University in Kentucky. A $10 donation is encouraged. All proceeds benefit music scholarships or the GC Department of Music through GCSU Foundation, Inc. For more information, please email music@gcsu.edu or call 478-445-8289."
  • " Monday, March 28 – At 7:30 p.m., Georgia College will host an exciting and unusual chamber music group, The Palmetto Saxophone Quartet, in Max Noah Recital Hall. The concert, titled “Backburner,” will also be livestreamed on Facebook at www.facebook.com/GCMusicDepartment. The ensemble consists of virtuoso performer/teachers from the Southeast. Dr. Clifford Leaman is a world-renowned saxophone soloist and senior associate dean of the University of South Carolina School of Music. He plays soprano in the group. Sheldon Johnson, a saxophone professor from Radford University plays alto, and Professor Matthew Castner from the University of South Carolina, Aiken, plays baritone saxophone. Georgia College’s own Dr. Andrew J. Allen––assistant professor of saxophone and coordinator of woodwinds, brass and percussion––is the group’s tenor saxophonist. The program features an “incredibly challenging work” by American composer Frank Ticheli, which figures prominently in the concert. A $10 donation is encouraged.

Mail-in donations for music scholarships can be made out to GCSU Foundation, Inc. and sent to GC Music Department, CBX 66, Milledgeville, GA 31061.
