Augusta University’s Department of Music presents 2020 Holiday Gala Concert

The Department of Music at Augusta University has released a video of its 2020 Holiday Gala Concert performed by both students and faculty members.

“This holiday concert is our special gift to our musical supporters and donors in the community,” said Dr. Angela Morgan, chair of the music department and professor of violin.

In the video, Morgan also discusses the completion of the $3.5 million renovation of the Fine Arts Center that occurred earlier this year.

Dickinson Architects of Augusta renovated the Fine Arts Center by swapping the locations of the former recital space and the classrooms to improve the function and capacity of the building, while also enhancing the faculty studios for practice and instruction. A specific emphasis was placed on improving the acoustics in the instructional and performance areas, Morgan said.

“Our Fine Arts Center has experienced a total renovation,” Morgan said. “We spent over $3.5 million and now have state-of-the-art classrooms, practice rooms and this wonderful recital hall. This hall gives us the opportunity to have smaller and more intimate performances for both our students and our faculty.”

Please enjoy the 2020 Holiday Gala Concert from the Department of Music!
