From Paris to Budapest
Tuesday, Aug. 27 Georgia College presents the music of two great cities, “From Paris to Budapest,” at 7:30 p.m. in Max Noah Recital Hall. Guest artist and cellist Martin Gueorguiev will perform, along with Georgia College faculty David Johnson, violinist, and William McClain, violist. Gueorguiev teaches cello at Oxford College of Emory University and has served as concertmaster of the Macon Symphony Orchestra. Paris and Budapest are both known for music.
Paris produced choral music in the Middle Ages, ballets during the Renaissance, music halls and cabarets in the 19th century and jazz in the 20th. Likewise, Budapest is an intricate part of musical culture in Hungary with its classical, modern experimental, electronica, alternative music and traditional Hungarian folk songs. String trios will be performed, composed by Ernst von Dohnányi and Jean Françaix, as well as an original trio by David Johnson. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call 478-445-8289.
