SIXTH SEASON PROMISES RICH AND ENTERTAINING MUSIC: FROM CLASSIC MASTERPIECES TO ANTHONY KEARNS, IRISH TENOR TO A NEW FAMILY CONCERT
Savannah, GA- April 21, 2014 The Savannah Philharmonic announced the launch of its 2014-2015 Season “Live the Music” on Monday, April 21, 2014 on the stage of the Lucas Theatre for the Arts to a full-stage of supporters and community friends.
Conductor & Artistic Director, Peter Shannon commented, “Our last season was a landmark one for the Philharmonic. Sold out halls, increased giving, and an orchestra and chorus that continue to go from strength to strength are a few of the wonderful things to look back on.” He continues,
“This new season builds on that: the repertoire is a good mix of everything, and I truly believe there is not one concert that can be missed. In fact, it’s hard for me to choose a favorite, and this is proof positive that the Philharmonic is on its way to more success! I cannot wait to get started!”
The 6th Season has a foundation built on some of the true cornerstones of the classical repertoire, while expanding by introducing some new repertoire to Savannah through the Chamber Concert series. The emotion and energy this music demands from the Philharmonic musicians will make these concert experiences for music-lovers and newcomers second to none.
