Vola O’Connor Jacobs was an integral part of the musical fabric of Augusta for most of her life. A graduate of the Eastman School of Music, she returned to her hometown of Augusta, performed often as soloist and concerto artist, and taught many hundreds of piano students, some of whom have become teachers of the next generation of pianists. This concert is in memory of the significant contribution she made to music in Augusta and throughout the Southeastern United States.
