Spivey Hall invites Georgia educators to its annual Teacher Appreciation Night, honoring their efforts to foster student success in school and in life.
This year, the event features a performance by the Regina Carter Quartet, described by Time Magazine
as being “Wonderfully listenable,
probingly intelligent, and at times, breathtakingly daring…taking the listener into the future of jazz.”
Violinist Carter has a special affinity for teachers; after graduating from Oakland University in Rochester, Mich., she taught strings in the
Detroit city schools. More recently, Carter served as artist-in-residence at San Francisco Performances, teaching music to disadvantaged
children and spreading the joy of music to people in community centers and churches around the Bay area.
After the performance, teachers will have the opportunity to meet Carter in person. There will also be a light reception following the concert.
Tickets are priced at $46, but students and educators can purchase tickets for $10 (limit two per valid school ID). Additional discounts are available for subscribers and groups. For full program details for all performances, tickets or more information, call the Spivey Hall Box Office at (678) 466-4200, or visit www.spiveyhall.org
. Discounted tickets are only available by calling the box office.
