Congrats to GRAMMY winners appearing at Spivey Hall

Spivey Hall guest artists are no strangers to the annual GRAMMY Awards. 

Coming Home by Mark O'Connor and The O'Connor Band just won the 2017 Best Bluegrass Album GRAMMY.  Congratulations! Fresh from this honor, they'll be performing at Spivey Hall THIS SATURDAY, Feb. 18, 2017 at 7:30 PM. Get your tickets online by clicking here.

Among the 2017 GRAMMY recipients who have performed at Spivey Hall in recent seasons:

Soprano Dorothea Röschmann and pianist Mitsuko Uchida's Schumann & Berg CD (selections of which they performed at Spivey Hall) tied with the "Shakespeare Songs" projects led by tenor Ian Bostridge (who's given three solo recitals at Spivey Hall) for Best Classical Solo Vocal Album. Magdalena Kozena, who made her third Spivey Hall appearance earlier this season, in October, was also a nominee for this GRAMMY Award.

Jazz pianist Fred Hersch, a 2017 GRAMMY nominee for both Best Improvised Jazz Solo and Best Jazz Instrumental Album, returns to Spivey Hall for one night only in a solo piano performance Saturday, Apr. 8 at 7:3o PM.  And it's great to see Rene Marie (a two-time Spivey Hall jazz headliner, with us last season) also nominated, as well as the Kenny Barron Trio, seen and heard at Spivey Hall (more good news about them soon, too).

Two instrumentalists nominated for the  2017 Best Instrumental Solo GRAMMY will be performing at Spivey Hall next season, details of which will be announced at the Spivey Hall Season Announcement Celebration  (by invitation only) in early March.
