Savannah Wind Symphony opens season with concert on Armstrong Campus
Savannah Wind Symphony, a community symphony serving the Coastal Empire, will hold its first concert on the Georgia Southern Armstrong Campus in Savannah. The symphony is comprised of musicians from the greater Savannah area.
Director of Savannah Winds, Mark Johnson, said the first concert will have a variety of pieces.
“Everyone associated with the Savannah Wind Symphony is excited to get this season underway,” Johnson said. “Our first concert program promises an entertaining eclectic mix of old and new selections including tour de force Ron Nelson’s ‘Savannah River Holiday’ and Michael Gandolfi’s virtuosic ‘Ventos y Tangos.’”
The role of the ensemble is to enhance the cultural climate and appreciation of music in the Coastal Empire by performing public concerts at a high artistic level, to provide a nurturing musical environment to talented young musicians in the company of mature and accomplished musicians, and to identify and support scholarship recipients for advanced musical training at the Armstrong Campus.
The concert will be held in the Fine Arts Auditorium on Nov. 13 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are free for Georgia Southern students, faculty and staff, while general admission is $15 with discounts available for military, seniors and children.
