The North Georgia College & State University Orchestra will present its Spring 2011 concert at 8 p.m. Friday in the Hoag Student Center Auditorium, located on the main campus of North Georgia College & State University in Dahlonega. General admission for the concert is $5 for adults and $2 for students.

The concert will prominently feature three senior orchestra members who have made significant contributions to North Georgia’s music program.

Carla Ganyard — concertmaster and recipient of the 2010 Dismukes Distinguished Musician Award — will assume a solo role in "Souvenir d’un lieu cher" by Peter Tchaikovsky. Oboists Sarah Dean and Ryan Jarchow will be featured in Tomaso Albinoni’s Concerto in F Major. The program will also include Samuel Barber’s haunting "Adagio for Strings," along with "Czech Suite," by Antonin Dvorak.

North Georgia students, faculty and staff are admitted free with university ID. For more information, please contact the North Georgia Performing Arts Department at 706-864-1423.
