The Summer World Music Festival

Presented as part of the Spivey Hall Education Young People’s Concerts. 

Summer 2014 is the inaugural season of this series that aims to serve students, parents, teachers, and senior adults with quality 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.  Tickets for Spivey Hall’s Summer World Music Festival are priced at $2 per concert ($5 at the door) and are available for purchase now.  Click on Purchase Tickets or Contact Spivey Hall Education to reserve your seats today!
