“Thrilling, engrossing and illuminating.”—Gramophone

UGA Presents is proud to welcome the acclaimed British pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason to Hodgson Concert Hall for a very special performance inaugurating the Performing Arts Center’s new Hamburg Steinway D piano. From concerto performances with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, to collaborations with her brother Sheku Kanneh-Mason, to solo recitals across the United States and Europe, Kanneh-Mason showcases star power and virtuosity in equal measure. She brings musicality and skill to a program of music by Haydn, Fanny Mendelssohn, Robert Schumann, and Chopin in her first visit to Athens.

Free Admission (Tickets Required)

Join us for a free pre-performance talk by Performance Today host Fred Child in Ramsey Concert Hall from 6:30-7:15 pm. His appearance is part of the UGA Signature Lecture series.

This season, we are proud to welcome our first Artist in Focus, Isata Kanneh-Mason. This dynamic young British artist from a noted musical family will appear twice in Hodgson Concert Hall. She’ll play a solo recital in October and then return in January with London’s Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, with which she has served as Artist in Residence.
