Richard Morris Gives Annual Spivey Hall Recital on April 4

Spivey Hall organist-in-residence Richard Morris will give his annual recital in Clayton State University’s world-famous performance venue on Saturday, Apr. 4 at 3 p.m.

Morris commands a vast knowledge of the organ repertoire as well as a quick wit; his commentary from the stage is both informative and entertaining. A renowned concert organist who has performed extensively throughout the United States, he is one of the few organists ever to give a solo recital at Carnegie Hall. Morris presently serves as organist at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church in Mableton, Ga.

World Magazine described his recent MSR Classics CD, The Grand Tradition, featuring the A.E. Schlueter Pipe Organ at Savannah's First Presbyterian Church, as "an awe-inspiring program resulting from a skillful blend of virtuosity and reverence."

Tickets to this performance are $30 (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).

A unit of the University System of Georgia, Clayton State University is an outstanding comprehensive metropolitan university located 15 miles southeast of downtown Atlanta.
