The Candler Series was formally created in 1966 when Flora Glenn
Candler created an endowment for the fine arts activities she had
long supported at Emory. Next year will mark the 35th full season
presented through the endowment, and it will coincide with the February
2003 opening of the Donna and Marvin Schwartz Center for Performing
Arts at Emory. The new centers dance studio will host Doug
Varone and Dancers, while the first classical series concert in
the centers concert hall will be violinist Sarah Chang. Fall
events will be held in Glenn Auditorium.
The 200203 Candler Series is one of the most diverse
Emory has ever presented, said Schwartz Center Managing Director
Bob McKay. The series has featured four to six classical performances
for many years. Next year, arts lovers can once again take in four
stellar classical concerts but also experience some new surprises
of international renown. The recent increase in resources for the
arts at Emory, including the Schwartz Center, enabled us to add
jazz, modern dance and a major theatrical work to our Candler offerings.
