The final Collage Chamber Series of the academic year is being spearheaded by GPS (Greensboro Project Space of the UNCG School of Art) and The Forge, both located at 219 W. Lewis St in downtown Greensboro and takes on a new look through the GSO City Market.
Various types of vendors, food trucks, and performances will be stretched along Lewis Street between GPS/Forge building and the intersection of Elm Street. Embedded in the street market will be kiosks with UNCG student composers’ original works which are linked to Greensboro’s past (this month’s theme for the market).
The musical offerings will also be divided into three 20 minute mini-concerts presented by Collage Chamber Series in the main gallery space of GPS. These concerts will be at 6:30, 7:00, and 7:30 and will primarily feature UNCG SoM students. The repertoire is entertaining and engaging, and the concerts have been constructed to allow more freedom of movement of the audience as they potentially come in and out of the market.
