Academy of Ancient Music to Open Spivey Hall 2009 Spring Bach Festival

Clayton State University’s world-famous Spivey Hall will open its 2009 Spring Bach Festival on Sunday, Mar. 29, with the complete Brandenburg Concertos, BWV 1046 – 1051, performed by London's top-notch 22-member period-instrument ensemble, the Academy of Ancient Music, under the direction of harpsichordist Richard Egarr.

The 3 p.m. performance marks the Spivey Hall debut of the Academy of Ancient Music and will be preceded by a pre-concert talk at 2 p.m. One of the world's first early-music ensembles, the Academy of Ancient Music is now in its fourth decade as one of the world's finest, and "with Richard Egarr's brilliance as its music director," reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, "this orchestra is playing better than ever." Complimentary intermission refreshments will complete the afternoon's musical feast.

Tickets to this performance are $60 (50 percent off for Clayton State faculty and staff); Clayton State students pay just $10. For tickets and more information, call the Spivey Hall Box Office at (678) 466-4200. Full-price tickets only are available online at (a per-ticket service fee applies).
