The Savannah Philharmonic Orchestra, recognized as one of the finest per-service orchestras in the Southeast region, is preparing to launch its 12th season. The City of Savannah is the oldest city in Georgia, with a metro population of just under 400,000 and welcoming 13 million tourists every year. The Philharmonic presents a season of eight classic concerts plus Pops, Holiday Performances, Runouts, Young People’s Concerts, and many successful education & outreach programs.
The Savannah Philharmonic is governed by a 24-member Board of Directors, with five full-time staff and three part-time employees. Its annual operating budget is generally $1.1 million. The Executive Director will work in close collaboration with Music & Artistic Director Keitaro Harada, who is represented by Columbia Artists. Harada maintains a growing, international presence throughout North America, Asia, Mexico, and Europe. His broad scope of musical interest is in symphonic, opera, chamber works, pops, film scores, ballet, education, outreach, and multi-disciplinary projects leading to diverse and eclectic programming.
The audition is a chance for our Chorus Director to hear your voice and assess your fit into the Chorus. It will consist of singing a major scale and a phrase from a well-known tune (e.g. “My Country Tis of Thee”, or “The Star-Spangled Banner”), a cappella. A short rhythm and sight singing exercise will follow, closing with a couple of music theory questions.
Audition Dates/Locations: TBD
