Glorious sounds of Collage: Atlantic Crossings Sept. 9

photo of people playing musicThis is the 10th annual Collage, a unique production in which musicians in groups large and small seamlessly take the spotlight onstage and from various places in the auditorium, one after another, exploring musical pieces from various decades and illustrating connections of musical works across time and cultures.

This year’s production, which includes more than 300 students from the School of Music, will be a celebration of diversity and the exchange of ideas between cultures across the Atlantic Ocean. Over the course of nearly thirty brief performances, Collage explores the relationship between Europe, Africa, the Americas and the Caribbean through music, with works like Dvorak’s New World Symphony, jazzed-up Bach, sacred music from eighteenth-century Brazil, and much, much more.

The performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 9.

A week following this concert, the School of Music will present its Collage concert outside of Greensboro for the first time. That concert, in Raleigh’s Meymandi Concert Hall, is already sold out.

Tickets remain for the UNCG Auditorium concert (as of Aug. 21).

Tickets have sold out each year in Greensboro.

Tickets are $14-$26 for adults, $10-$21 for seniors and $7-$16 for students. All ticket proceeds benefit the School of Music Collage Scholarship Fund.
