TIFTON -- The first concert of the semester in the First Tuesday Performance Series at Abraham Baldwin College will take place Sept. 7 at 7 p.m. in the Chapel of All Faiths.

Individual tickets for the performance may be purchased at the door. The cost is $3 for adults and $1 for students. ABAC students are admitted free with ID. Patrons of the Arts and Entertainment Series can also attend at no charge.
