Savannah shows off with its Music Festival

The Savannah Music Festival starts March 18 and runs through April 3. This is Georgia’s largest music festival and offers the opportunity to hear multiple genres of music — classical, jazz, Southern soul, bluegrass, Zydeco. There’s something for everyone — from master classes to children’s concerts, from world music to American country.

The city opens its doors and concerts are scheduled at many venues: the Rousakis Plaza on River Street, the Might 8th Air Force Museum, the Johnny Mercer Theatre, Temple Mickve Israel, Christ Church, Telfair Academy of Arts & Science, Trustees Theater, Jepson Center for the Arts and the Charles H. Morris Center.

Just look at this variety: Kathy Mattea and Patty Loveless, Mike Marshalls’ Big Trio, Yefim Bronfmann Nicole Cabell (2005 winner of the BBC Singer of the World Competition,) the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra with pianist Lang Lang,  Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, New Orleans Blues party, Jeffery Broussard and the Creole Cowboys. But don’t stop there – check the website and make plans to hear some music you’re not familiar with. You may fall in love with it. Some days there are more than one concert scheduled.

And let’s face it, it’s hard not to have a wonderful time in the beautiful city of Savannah with its moss-draped squares, excellent restaurants, history and culture.  Some concerts are already sold out, (and a few are free) so you’ll want to make your reservations quickly.

And yes, it’s at least ten degrees warmer in Savannah than Atlanta.
