Larsen Musician Spotlight Series

The Savannah Philharmonic is proud to announce the second season of the Larsen Musician Spotlight Series. The popular series, which is part of the Philharmonic Experience subscription package, consists of six Sunday afternoon concerts arranged throughout the eleventh season and will launch on Sunday, September 15. The series, in its evolution, will feature collaborative initiatives between our own Philharmonic musicians and premier institutions and artists from Savannah and beyond.

Every concert will present a different perspective of the Savannah Philharmonic’s involvement in the community and its mission to provide residents, as well as visitors, with the opportunity to attend chamber concerts of the highest artistic order.

Major components of our upcoming season will include educational and community outreach efforts with students from Savannah Arts Academy, bringing in premier and established ensembles such as Blue Heron and ARCO Chamber Orchestra (University of Georgia), and commissioning a piece from Georgia Southern University composer and faculty member Dr. Martin Gendelman.
