The Savannah Philharmonic updates plans for its 2020/21 season
While many organizations have had to cancel planned events until 2021, the Savannah Philharmonic (SavPhil) remains committed to delivering entertainment and inspiration to the community. Carefully prioritizing safety above all other considerations, SavPhil musicians are set to delight audiences this fall, as Keitaro Harada, the organization’s Music and Artistic Director, has crafted a compelling, revised schedule for 2020/21.
“My heart goes out to those who have been affected by COVID-19,” Harada says. “This pandemic has challenged our team to step away from the traditional form of concertizing and seek new ways of bringing music to our community. Savannah is my new home and I am extremely excited to start my inaugural season sharing the beautiful music-making with our musicians.”
According to Edward J. Lada, SavPhil’s Director of Artistic Operations, “Art is more important than ever right now, whether it’s uplifting, enlightening, entertaining, or just simply distracting. To adapt to the current crisis, we’re rapidly developing a digital platform that will allow anyone to experience SavPhil’s art from anywhere in the world. But this will not be a replacement for live performances; we see it as an extra option that will remain available for our audience in the future.”
SavPhil is working closely with local venue operators who share the orchestral organization’s devotion to the health and safety of its musicians, patrons, and staff. Lada notes, “Performances will be both indoors; where we can ensure adequate ventilation, sterilization, and space for our performers and audience; as well as outdoors. Details will be released in the fall as we confirm specifics.”
