War and treaty, Ira glass set

The University of Georgia Center for the Performing Arts’ most eclectic schedule yet will begin with a Sept. 8 performance by Nashville-based R&B duo The War and Treaty and run through May 2023, with concerts of violinist Itzhak Perlman, the Orchestra of Ukraine and “This American Life” host Ira Glass among others.

Season tickets are on sale now at the Performing Arts Center box office or through their website pac.uga.edu. Single-show ticket sales begin Aug. 8 with prices starting at $25 ($10 for UGA students) plus a $2 service charge. Most performances take place at the Hugh Hodgson Concert Hall (230 River Road) and parking is always free.

Nashville-based husband-and-wife singers Michael Trotter Jr. and Tanya Trotter form The War and Treaty, whose combination of soul, rock and gospel genres has resulted in a comparison to Ike & Tina Turner by Rolling Stone magazine.

The War and Treaty was named Emerging Artist of the Year by Americana Music Honors & Awards in 2019 and won Artist of the Year from Folk Alliance International in 2020.
