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.
