The UGA Performing Arts Center will present the Russian Folk Instrument Orchestra Oct. 1 at 3 p.m. in Hodgson Concert Hall.

The program will feature popular selections as well as Russian folk music performed on traditional instruments including the bayan, domra and balalaika.

The Russian Folk Instrument Orchestra is composed of professional soloists and students from Moscow's Gnessin Academy of Music, one of Russia's most prestigious conservatories. The orchestra is conducted by Boris Voron, an Honored Artist of Russia.

During the orchestra's visit to Athens, the Performing Arts Center will present a concert for local elementary school students on the Performances for Young People series, and members of the orchestra also will work with students from UGA's Hugh Hodgson School of Music.

Tickets for the Oct. 1 concert are $25 and can be purchased at the Performing Arts Center box office, online at pac.uga.edu or by calling 706-542-4400.
