First Summer World Music Festival set

Clayton State University’s Spivey Hall (www.spiveyhall.org), the Southeast’s premier recital hall renowned internationally for its superior acoustics and the excellence of its classical, jazz and world music artists, has announced details of its 2014 summer education programming.

In addition to its summer camp (http://www.spiveyhall.org/educational-programs/summercamp/), this year scheduled for June 9 to June13, Spivey Hall will launch its first Summer World Music Festival (http://www.spiveyhall.org/educational-programs/spivey-hall-summer-world-...) including seven performances by various global artists over eight weeks in June and July 2014.

“Accessibility remains vital for Spivey Hall’s education programs,” says Melanie Darby, Spivey Hall’s education manager. “Increased emphasis on testing and the scarcity of buses pose challenges for out-of-classroom learning and enrichment for many Atlanta area students during the school year.

The Summer World Music Festival and the Summer Music Camp aim to serve families with quality learning experiences and performances during the summer months when academic calendars and transportation issues will not be an obstacle to attendance.”

Spivey’s Summer World Music Festival will include seven performances in June and July; concerts will take place in Spivey Hall on Wednesday mornings at 11:15 a.m.
Each week will present an instrumental or vocal artist or ensemble performing music that represents different regions and cultures around the world.

The Summer World Music Festival is presented as part of Spivey Hall’s Young People’s Concerts, providing individuals of all ages access to outstanding live performances. Artists featured during the Summer World Music Festival will provide study guides in advance of their performance that meet Georgia Performance Standards for curriculum connections in world history, geography, and music

The Spivey Hall Summer World Music Festival is supported in part by the Georgia Council for the Arts through the appropriations of the Georgia General Assembly. GCA also receives support from its partner agency, the National Endowment for the Arts.

Tickets for Spivey Hall’s Summer World Music Festival are priced at $2 per concert and are available for purchase now at http://www.spiveyhall.org/educational-programs/program-registration/.
