Savannah, GA – March 26, 2020 – The Savannah Philharmonic today announced it is cancelling the rest of its 2019 – 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The cancelled concerts include the Saturday’s Night Fever chorus concert on April 18, Mozart Requiem on May 2, and the previously rescheduled Germanic Passion concert on June 20.
“This decision, though difficult and disappointing, is unavoidable,” said Board Chair Rhegan White-Clemm, “but our highest priority is the health and safety of everyone connected with Savannah Philharmonic — our musicians, patrons, supporters and staff. During this extraordinary time, when concert revenue has come to an abrupt halt, we would be truly grateful if our loyal patrons converted their unused tickets into a tax-deductible donation to the Philharmonic.”
Ticket holders do have the option of either receiving a refund or turning their unused tickets into a donation. In either case, they should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with their name, email used to purchase the tickets, and whether they want to donate them or are requesting a refund.
The Philharmonic’s 2020 – 2021 season beginning on September 17 with Maestro Keitaro Harada remains on schedule. To purchase season subscriptions, single tickets, and multi-concert packages go to our website savannahphilharmonic.org.
