SAVANNAH, GA – April 30, 2019 – The Savannah Philharmonic, Edgemere/Sackville Neighborhood Association and the City of Savannah have teamed up one again to host “Philharmonic in the Streetz” from 1-4 p.m. Sunday, May 19 at the neighborhood park site located at the intersection of Cedar St. and DeLesseps Ave. in Savannah. This is second year of the collaboration between the Savannah Philharmonic, the City of Savannah and the Edgemere/Sackville Neighborhood Association: A Savannah Shines Neighborhood.
Open to all and designed to celebrate community, “Philharmonic in the Streetz” will be emceed by WTOC’s Cyreia Sandlin and will feature Philharmonic musicians performing on an outdoor stage. Live musician performances will include Laiken Love and the Fellowship of Love, the well-known all-female four-piece ensemble Celli, and students from DeRenne Middle School and Myers Middle School. Magic Marc will entertain children and young-at-heart with magic tricks and activities. Leopold’s will provide complimentary ice cream, and food from Latin Chicks will be available for purchase. The event is sponsored by WTOC.
Philharmonic in the Streetz is unique in its blurring of lines between audience and musician; the crowd becomes a part of the show when guests are encouraged to dance, sing along and, occasionally, are invited to join the musicians on stage. Attendees can expect to hear everything from classical masterpieces, to blues, jazz and pop numbers.
“The Philharmonic is proud to produce and present this growing community event,” said Savannah Philharmonic Executive Director Terri O’Neil. “Every time we do this block party, we find new audiences, build camaraderie and highlight neighborhood students who participate in our education programs. New friendships and new music enthusiasts are so fulfilling. Music really does bring people together!”
The mission of the Edgemere/Sackville Neighborhood Association is to always work together harmoniously to be good stewards of the neighborhood and to ensure those living in the neighborhood a quiet, safe area and desirable, blight-free place to live. The association also advocates for the general welfare of the neighborhood by collaborating with city officials and with other civic and public organizations.

The organization informs, instructs and enriches the community through orchestral and choral performances, while promoting and increasing community knowledge and appreciation of the arts.
