The Spivey Hall Honor Workshops

Since 1993, Spivey Hall has offered varied music education programs for students, teachers, and adult musicians, now providing educational opportunities for 17,000 individuals annually.  Commanding half of Spivey Hall’s schedule, these programs hold the greatest promise for the future, enriching lives throughout greater Atlanta.

As part of these programs, the Spivey Hall Treble Honor Choir, High School Honor Choir, Honor Chamber Orchestra, and Spivey Jazz Ensemble are designed to serve the area’s most talented students. Led by renowned clinicians, students will be enriched and inspired by these intensive workshops.

The workshops expand students’ knowledge of a variety of repertoire, develop their music-reading skills, and enhance their technical abilities.  Choral and instrumental teachers from surrounding middle and high schools are also invited to observe the guest clinicians as they work with the students, with the option to earn professional learning credit at the same time.  The Spivey Hall Honor Workshops seek not only to give young people the rare opportunity to perform in a world-class concert hall but also to develop their talents through music and interaction with other dedicated students.

The legacy of these outstanding workshops speaks to the mission of Spivey Hall:  a dedication to artistic excellence and enrichment through access to fine music and education programs that address the needs of our diverse communities.
