Celebration

The Georgia Tech Concert Orchestra will perform contemporary composer TSANG Lok-yan’s Dorian Dance as well as Schubert’s Eighth Symphony for their first concert of the fall semester. In addition, the Georgia Tech Jazz Program, under the direction of Dr. Chip Crotts, explores music from the late 1920s through the present day, including works by composers such as Duke Ellington, Bill Holman, Sammy Nestico, Charles Mingus, and Pat Metheny. Emphasis in these groups is focused on ensemble playing and the art of improvisation, an essential element in jazz tradition.
