Issac Holms for a concert in Hong Kong on June 29th.  The concert is sponsored by the Horns Chorus of Hong Kong and Opera of 2 Worlds, a non-profit promoting concerts with European Opera and Chinese Opera performances.  In addition to the Hong Kong concert, GRU Music student Sufeng Sophia Tian has arranged a concert and masterclasses to be given by Dr. Banister and Dr. Kuyper with the College of Music at the Guangxi Art Institute in Nanning, China.

The Maxwell Theatre Box Office is closed for the summer.  It will re-open with the beginning of classes next fall.  Although regular box office hours are not available in summer, our office staff will be happy to help you.  Please call the box office number, 706-667-4100 for any assistance you require.  For events that require tickets, the event presenters are handling the tickets directly.  Phone numbers for tickets will be available on event listings.

For a few weeks out of each year we shift our focus from GRU's current college students to our area's future college students.  May and June bring children of every age to the theatre to participate in music camps and dance recitals.  Keep an eye on our event listings for more information.
