As the Savannah Philharmonic Orchestra (SPO) enters its Tenth Anniversary Season we continue our commitment to providing world-class live music, education and outreach programs that improves and enriches the lives of residents and visitors in our community. Comprised of highly trained staff, musicians and an auditioned community chorus, SPO performs a full season of concerts which includes classical, choral, jazz, pops, and chamber music. Music has been uniting people throughout history, and 2019 will be no different for SPO and the City of Savannah. Among our board, staff and our professional musicians, we represent diverse cultures, educational backgrounds, and ideologies, yet we come together to produce, perform and educate. With decades of cumulative artistic, administrative, special events and financial management, SPO is striving to be “Savannah’s” Philharmonic in perpetuity.
SPO is deeply committed to music, music education and accessibility to the performing arts by providing free education and free outreach initiatives to our community, including the city’s largest outdoor cultural event, Picnic in the Park, Orchestra Lab in partnership with Savannah-Chatham Public Schools (SCCPSS), and Philharmonic in the Streetz, in partnership with area neighborhood associations.
It is the SPO’s mission to continuously offer positive musical experiences to a broad cross-section of Savannah residents and its neighboring communities.
