SAVANNAH, GA – Oct. 16, 2017 – The Savannah Philharmonic’s fall fundraiser, “Phil, Strings and a Steinway,” will be a magical evening of music and art at 6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 6 in the Neises Auditorium and Jepson Center Atrium.

For this one-night only fundraiser, Philharmonic Board of Directors Vice Chairman Samir Nikocevic will perform a program of classical and popular pieces on a concert Steinway Grand Piano sent to the Philharmonic from Fox Music House of Charleston. The program will also feature Concertmaster Dr. Sinisa Ciric, first violinist Danijela Zezelj-Guaidi, and principal second violinist Ricardo Ochoa. The sound from this magnificent Steinway combined with the talent of world-class musicians, in such an intimate venue, promises a magical evening and marks a continuation of the Philharmonic’s partnership with Fox Music House.

Following the concert, guests will be treated to a cocktail reception and an art auction. Attendees will enjoy champagne and canapes as they browse the work of local artists; the proceeds from any pieces sold will go to support the Philharmonic’s mission and programs

The night will cost attendees a little more than the usual Philharmonic events. VIP Select seats cost $150 each, and Premier Regular seats cost $95 each. The increase in price will help fund future concerts from the organization.

“Last year’s fundraiser, ‘Four Hands and a Steinway,’ proved to be such a success, we jumped at the chance to host a similar performance again this year,” Nikocevic said. “It’ll be a very warm and inviting performance – much smaller than a typical orchestra concert – but our guests that evening will enjoy and up-close and personal experience with the music. We’re looking forward to a fun and delightfully entertaining evening with the Philharmonic’s most enthusiastic fans and supporters.”
