TRIPLE TREAT: Bernstein, Gershwin, and Mussorgsky

Lucas Theatre for the Arts – 7:30pm

Vladimir Kulenovic, Conductor

Ian Parker, Pianist

Our 11th Season opens with a thrilling array of masterpieces. Bernstein’s effervescent Overture from Candide sets the mood for Gershwin’s landmark piano concerto, one of the first pieces to truly bring the sound of jazz into the concert hall. The evening closes with Mussorgsky’s towering Pictures at an Exhibition.

BERNSTEIN Candide: Overture

GERSHWIN Piano Concerto in F

MENDELSSOHN Violin Concerto

Lucas Theatre for the Arts – 7:30 pm

Sameer Patel, Conductor

William Hagen, Violinist

We embark explore three flavors of celebration in this memorable concert, beginning with Anna Clyne’s ceremonial overture written for the BBC Proms. Mendelssohn’s violin concerto warmly celebrates great friendship (and virtuosity), and we conclude with Prokofiev’s unbridled homage to the human spirit.

ANNA CLYNE: Masquerade 

MENDELSSOHN: Violin Concerto

PROKOFIEV: Symphony No. 5

HOLIDAY SPECTACULAR

Johnny Mercer Theatre – 7:30 pm

Nadège Foofat, Conductor

This year, we’re reimagining what it means to celebrate the holidays. In the first half of our program, we collaborate with the Savannah Children’s Choir to tell O. Henry’s heartfelt The Gift of the Magi as adapted by Adolphus Hailstork. Then, in the second half, we let our hair down and get funky with a Motown holiday tribute and other fun favorites!

HAILSTORK The Gift of the Magi

MISCHIEVOUS MUSICIANS

Lucas Theatre for the Arts – 7:30 pm

Janna Hymes, Conductor

Nathan Lee, Pianist

Who says music has to be stuffy? Mozart and Rossini are perhaps the music world’s best-loved comedians, but Ibert is no slouch either. His Divertissment, originally written for the theater, pokes fun at famous music of the time, including a send-up of Mendelssohn’s famous Wedding March. Even notoriously-grumpy Beethoven joins in the fun with his lighthearted Eighth Symphony.

IBERT: Divertissement

MOZART: Piano Concerto #12, A major

Intermission

BEETHOVEN: Symphony No. 8 in F

ROSSINI: Barber of Seville: Overture

Savannah Philharmonic Orchestra

MODERN TO MAJESTIC

Johnny Mercer Theater – 7:30pm

Enrico Lopez-Yañez, Conductor

Tonight’s program pushes the boundaries of what we consider “classical” music. Márquez’ Danzón No. 2 will have you dancing in the aisles, and Gilliland’s Dreaming of the Masters III sounds like it’s straight out of a jazz club. And for his Fourth Symphony, Tchaikovsky threw out the rules of how a symphony was “supposed” to be written, gifting us with one of his greatest masterpieces.

MÁRQUEZ: Danzon No. 2

GILLILAND: Dreaming of the Masters III

Intermission

TCHAIKOVSKY: Symphony No. 4

GERMANIC PASSION

Lucas Theatre for the Arts – 7:30 pm

Vlad Vizireanu, Conductor

Ryne Cherry, Baritone

Music reached its pinnacle as an expressive, evocative medium with the German romantic composers, and this program features some of their best works. Beethoven and Mahler’s works capture passions at their most dramatic and most refined. In contrast, in Schubert’s “Great C-Major” you can almost hear his pen flying across paper, trying to keep up with his effortless inspiration.

BEETHOVEN: Leonore Overture No. 2

MAHLER: Rückert Lieder

Intermission

SCHUBERT: Symphony No. 9 in C, “The Great”

Transfiguration

Lucas Theatre for the Arts – 7:30pm
Savannah Philharmonic Chorus

Dr. Matt Caine, Conductor

Transfiguration: a complete change of form or appearance into a more beautiful or spiritual state. Join the Savannah Philharmonic Chorus as they musically explore various changes in life with the hope that our time spent together will result in not a mere change but rather in your own transfiguration.

ELEANOR DALEY: Requiem

MORTEN LAURIDSEN: Mid-Winter Songs

DONALD MCCULLOUGH: Crossing the Bar

GWYNETH WALKER: And Death Shall Have No Dominion

RALPH VAUGHAN WILLIAMS: Toward the Unknown Region

MOZART’S REQUIEM

Johnny Mercer Theater – 7:30 pm

Lidiya Yankovskaya, Conductor

The grand finale of our season seems an appropriate time to contemplate the future. Missy Mazzoli’s opening work contemplates the profound beauty that can be found all around us, while Schubert’s “Unfinished” Symphony and Mozart’s Requiem, at times brooding and at others triumphant, guide us on our way into the Savannah Philharmonic’s second decade.

Colleen Daly, Soprano

Zoie Reams, Mezzo-Soprano

Omar Najmi, Tenor

Larsen Musician Spotlight Series

Full programming details to be announced Mid-April.

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, Sept. 29. The series, in its evolution, is going to feature COLLABORATIVE initiatives between our own Philharmonic musicians and premier institutions and artists from Savannah and beyond. Every concert will present a different perspective on all the aspects of 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 upcoming season will include educational and community outreach efforts with students from Savannah Arts Academy, bringing in premier and established ensembles 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.

The excitement and interest for all these presentations is already so high among our musicians as well as featured artists. We are very much looking forward to this opportunity to present these amazing performances to our audiences and to invite them to enjoy the presence of their own orchestra in their beloved city of Savannah.

Join us for our Sunday afternoon chamber concerts at various locations. The Spotlight Series is available as part of the Phil Experience and the Student Suites subscription packages.
