Spivey Hall Mission Statement

Clayton State University’s Spivey Hall is dedicated to artistic excellence and enriching the lives of people through access to fine music, consistent with the vision of its founders, Walter and Emilie Spivey.

Spivey Hall fulfills its mission by presenting performances by outstanding international classical, jazz and world-music artists in its acoustically superb, 392-seat recital hall, and through music education programs developed in collaboration with educators, all of which address the needs of the diverse communities it serves.
