Savannah Philharmonic 2013-2014 Season Launch

Posted: Updated:
DOWNTOWN SAVANNAH -

Talent stretches far, and there's no shortage in Savannah.
 From pianists to violinists-- they are known for taking your breath away.
The Savannah Philharmonic Orchestra is going strong and ready for its Fifth Anniversary Season. 
Today the Philharmonic thanked many generous friends who sponsor their concerts and prepared them for what's to come. 
Considering how an uncertain economic environment has shaken up the arts community across the country Savannah's ensemble is seeing better times.
Being in touch with the community is credited with their survival. 
Their skills are admired and respected by musicians and the community alike.
The Executive Director says being in touch with the community is  important part of the cultural fabric in our city.
"We do things with schools the public school system.  So I think Orchestras that are doing well really cement themselves here in the community and particularly when around for us 40% of our ticket sales cover our income.  We have to raise the rest.  So If we don't engage people in what we're doing we're not gonna get people who support our organization. But we're doing that here in Savannah and very well," says David Pratt.
Savannah Philharmonic's opening night is September 21st at the Lucas Theatre.
