Joshua Bell / Jeremy Denk recital: the show will go on

Friday's snowfall gave most of Atlanta a covering of about 3 to 4 inches of white stuff we just don't see that often...! As I write, it's about 12:15 pm Saturday. My 3-mile drive to the campus was uneventful. Road surfaces receiving sunlight are dry in many places, though areas not receiving sunlight can be a little crunchy or slippery. Georgia Navigator shows mostly green for metro Atlanta, meaning that traffic is moving -- though, with any luck, for safety, at reduced speeds. And predicts temperatures mostly above freezing until 8 PM, slipping a few degrees afterwards, though these predictions are a few degrees higher than they were yesterday at this time.

After a few adjustments to flight plans, both Joshua Bell and Jeremy Denk are indeed going to be at Spivey Hall for tonight's 8:15 PM recital. So, the show is on. The house is 99% sold out. We're putting out BOTH coat racks in the lobby! It's not hard getting to or around the Clayton State campus, though please be very careful as you walk to the Hall itself from the parking lot -- and wear sturdy cold-weather shoes (leave your Gucci loafers and Manolo Blahnik stilettos at home tonight!).

People attending Joshua Bell and Jeremy Denk's recital tonight may expect to hear one of the most exciting concerts of Spivey Hall's 2009/10 season.

Friends of Spivey Hall at the $100 level or more who cannot use their tickets tonight may call the Box Office at (678) 466-4200 to take advantage of their same-day ticket exchange privileges, if necessary. The Box Office will also be able to respond to any other ticketing questions.
