SAV Philharmonic announces 2014-2015 season

Posted By on Thu, Apr 24, 2014 at 10:56 AM

The Savannah Philharmonic, under the direction of Peter Shannon, has unveiled its ambitious 2014-2015 season, its sixth in operation.

“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," says conductor and artistic director Shannon.

“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.

  • Editor's Note: The new normal of crime downtown

    While there is plenty of worry about how violent crime will affect tourism, the real concern is how it will affect the decision of residents whether or not to stay. The idea of leaving for a more safe locale seems almost inconceivable to those of us who’ve invested many years and whole lifetimes here. But Savannah’s just like anyplace else— people and businesses can decide it’s just not worth it anymore.
