Spivey Hall

Spivey Hall, located 25 minutes south of Atlanta on the campus of Clayton State University, is an intimate performance venue well-known for its superior acoustics. Classical and jazz artists love to perform here because "they know they can do their best work at Spivey Hall." That's according to Sam Dixon, the Hall's Executive and Artistic Director. Dixon is responsible for booking the Spivey Series concerts, and his keen ear is appreciated by performers and audience alike. Lois Reitzes recently spoke with Dixon and asked him how he curates each new Spivey season.

Classical guitarist Adam Levin has immersed himself in the music of Spain. He’s performed across the United States and Europe and on November 16th he pays a visit to Atlanta by way of a solo performance at Spivey Hall. Levin paid us a visit here at the WABE studios to talk about the work that went into his new album, 21st Century Spanish Guitar, and he was kind enough to play a little for us as well.

 When Jamie Barton last visited WABE, she was preparing for, as she called it, “The Olympics of Opera.” It's more formally known as the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World. Barton went on to win both the Song Prize and the entire competition. It's thrilling to win, but what happens next? 

Georgia native mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton will perform this Sunday afternoon at 3 at Spivey Hall

A Conversation with the Jupiter String Quartet

Nov 7, 2012

Formed in 2001, the Jupiter String Quartet places a strong emphasis on developing relationships with classical music audiences at all kinds of venues: concert halls, schools, even airports. One of those performances actually came when they visited WABE during one of our Cornerstone Society programs. In advance of their upcoming appearance at Spivey Hall, we’re going to revisit some of the highlights from our conversation with the group this past summer.
