The next event in the festival is Dispersions in Watercolor on May 16 at the Georgia Museum of Art, a free event where Amy Yang will be joined by UGA faculty and students to perform three new compositions inspired by visual art, poetry and the environment. On May 17 at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia’s Day Chapel, An Evening in Paris will feature works from Debussy, Bizet, Saint-Saëns, Francis Poulenc and Gabriel Fauré. On May 19 at First Baptist Church, The Art of the String Quartet will showcase the renowned Borromeo String Quartet performing Jean Sibelius, Eleanor Alberga and Franz Schubert pieces. The Chamber Music Athens Gala Finale is May 21 at Ramsey Hall, during which the Borromeo String Quartet will lead an ensemble of UGA faculty and students in performances of pieces from Bach and Tchaikovsky.
