The UGA Performing Arts Center opened with a gala week of performances 25 years ago, and now we’re currently in the middle of a gala week in celebration of this anniversary. On Apr. 28, the UGA Symphony Orchestra will perform Mahler’s epic Symphony No. 5 and the world premiere of “Fizzle, Sweep, Crash” by doctoral candidate Daniel Karcher. On May 1, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra returns with a performance of Beethoven’s third symphony Eroica and Max Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy bringing Celtic melodies to life with solo violin and harp. Since the top of the year, an anniversary promotion for select UGA Presents performances has been running—25 tickets available for $25—and includes this week’s gala events.
