The UGA Performing Arts Center presents award-winning pianist Seong-Jin Cho Feb. 17 at 8 p.m. in Hodgson Concert Hall. His program will include Schubert's Sonata No. 19 in C Minor and Chopin's 24 Preludes.

Cho's recital was originally scheduled for Ramsey Concert Hall but quickly sold out, so his performance has been moved to Hodgson Concert Hall to accommodate ticket demand. Patrons who purchased tickets for Ramsey Hall are being issued new tickets for Hodgson Hall.

Born in Seoul, South Korea, in 1994, Cho came to the world's attention in 2015 when he won first prize at the Chopin International Piano Competition in Warsaw. Four years prior to that, he won third prize at the Tchaikovsky Competition when he was only 16, and in 2009 he won first prize at the Hamamatsu International Piano Competition in Japan, becoming the youngest winner in the competition's history.

Cho has performed with some of the world's major orchestras, including the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Mariinsky Orchestra, Munich Philharmonic Orchestra, Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra, Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, Budapest Festival Orchestra, Danish National Symphony Orchestra, Russian National Orchestra and Radio France Philharmonic.

Tickets for Cho's recital are $36 and can be purchased at the Performing Arts Center, online at pac.uga.edu or by calling the box office at 706-542-4400.
