UGA Presents favorites return to Athens with co-artistic directors Wu Han and David Finckel. Two works by Beethoven lead to a dreamy miniature and an affirmative Dvořák piano quartet. A stellar lineup makes this the perfect program for the annual Payne Memorial concert.
Admission is free but tickets are required.
Enjoy a free pre-performance talk by Theresa Chafin in Ramsey Concert Hall from 2:15-2:45 p.m.
The Payne Memorial Concert is named in honor of Dr. William Jackson “Jack” Payne, former dean of the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences, who founded the Franklin College Chamber Music Series in 1978. Payne had a great love of the arts, and his wish was that the college should make a significant contribution to the cultural life of both the University and the Athens community through the chamber music series. In honor of his efforts, the Payne Memorial Concert is presented free to the public once each season.
