About Spivey Hall Children’s Choir Program
Founded under the direction of Dr. Martha Shaw, the Spivey Hall Children’s Choir Program consists of three choirs and draws from 18 metro-Atlanta counties. Membership and placement in the choirs is by audition, based on artistic merit and teacher recommendations, with need-based financial assistance available.
Singing with unmistakable spirit, refinement and remarkable beauty of tone and expression, all of these outstanding young musicians proudly represent Spivey Hall’s dedication to music education and commitment to artistic excellence.
