Spivey Hall Kicks off the Holiday Season Dec. 7th

Clayton State University’s Spivey Hall is once again preparing for the holidays, and this year, the holidays start on Sunday, Dec. 7 with the Spivey Hall debut of The Empire Brass.

One of America's leading brass quintets, the Empire Brass enjoys an international reputation for its stylistic excellence and the unparalleled diversity of its repertoire. Giving more than 100 concerts each year and adding to their discography on the Telarc label, the five musicians of the Empire Brass – Rolf Smedvig (trumpet), Marc Reese (trumpet), Gregory Miller (french horn), Alexei Doohovskoy (trombone) and Kenneth Amis (tuba) – "simply have no competition when it comes to the beauty and clarity and accuracy and balance and interaction of their playing – the first phrase of any Empire Brass performance live or on recording sends a thrill of pleasure through your nervous system" (The Boston Globe).

“Christmas With The Empire Brass” starts at 3 p.m. and celebrates Christmas through the ages with glorious music from the Renaissance to the present day. Tickets are $40.
