The Hugh Hodgson School of Music at the University of Georgia is proud to present the inaugural season of Chamber Music Athens, a new festival with a national scope that brings together internationally acclaimed guest artists, UGA faculty and students for ten days of concerts, public masterclasses, panel discussions, and intensive collaboration in rehearsals and chamber music coaching.
The exciting first-year line-up of guest artists includes the multi award-winning Jupiter String Quartet (Avery Fisher Career Grant, Banff International String Quartet Competition), internationally renowned pianist Peter Frankl (Yale School of Music professor for three decades), virtuosic violinist Soovin Kim (First Prize, Paganini International Competition in Genoa), and leading young soprano Sarah Shafer (San Francisco Opera, Metropolitan Opera).

Audiences will enjoy concerts in the acoustically splendid UGA Performing Arts Center as well as beautiful venues on and off the UGA campus, such as The Georgia Museum of Art, the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, the Seney-Stovall Chapel, the Hugh Hodgson School of Music, and ATHICA. Members of the community are also invited behind the scenes to enjoy open rehearsals, masterclasses, and panel discussions with guest artists and UGA faculty.
