After an arduous, emotionally draining and fiercely competitive audition process culminating with performances before an unforgiving panel of judges, three Augusta University music students have been awarded the honor of performing in the finale of the university’s prestigious Concerto Competition.
The concert takes place Thursday, April 21, at the Maxwell Theatre on the Summerville Campus of Augusta University. Show time is 7:30 p.m.
Benjamin Blackmon, a junior French horn performance major from Augusta, studies with Dr. Joseph Johnson and will perform Villanelle by Paul Dukas.
Raji Venkat, who hails from Roseville, CA, is a junior voice performance major studying with Patti Myers. She is going to perform two arias by Bach and Delibes.
Tickets are available now at The Maxwell Theatre Box Office, and on line at Augusta.UniversityTickets.Com. Concert tickets are $15 for the general public; Children ages 6-12 are $5; Augusta University students with a valid JAGCard are admitted free.
The Classical Music Concert Series is produced by GPB Augusta in cooperation with the Augusta University Department of Music.
