The Savannah Philharmonic believes that music can improve and enrich the lives of all members of our community, especially when choral and orchestral performances are combined with educational experiences. When the Savannah Philharmonic presents its educational programs, the organization draws on the experience of Conductor, Peter Shannon, its core orchestra Sectional 2members and its visiting artists from all over the world.  These regional, national and international music professionals not only share their talents with students but also their wealth of diverse experiences.

As Savannah’s only permanent orchestra, the Philharmonic provides opportunities for students and adults to attend live musical performances, workshops, master classes and educational events throughout the year.  As a locally-based organization, Educational Concert Rehearsalthe Philharmonic is able to work closely with area music teachers to tailor educational programs to meet their needs and to help support students as they move from one stage or their music education to the next.  To schedule a program for your students, please contact Jeana Melilli at 912.232.6002 or email:

These programs would not be available without the generous support of our community. If you would like to donate to our education programs, please call the Philharmonic office at 912.232.6002.
