With the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, we have co-commissioned anew piano concerto from Marcus Roberts conducted by maestro Robert Spano. Savannah native Joseph Conyers, Assistant Principal Bass of the Philadelphia Orchestra, makes his SMF debut in several programs.
Jazz fans will not want to miss Savannah debuts by Ahmad Jamal Rene Marie, Charles McPherson or Jane Monheit, while greats such as Houston Person, Joe Temperley, Martin Taylor, Julian Lagc and Lionel Loueke return for special performances, including the premiere of a commissioned work by Walter Blanding. Our annual Swing Central Jazz Finale will feature an unprecedented “Saxophone Summit,” showcasing a range of the finest saxophonists in our time, while cabaret fans should flock to see one of the art form’s brightest talents, Jennifer Sheehan, in her critically acclaimed show “You Made Me Love You: Celebrating 100 Years of the American Songbook.”
We hope you will join us for our 2013 Savannah Music Festival. For ticket information visit savannahmusicfestival.org
