The Savannah Music Festival is gearing up for its 35th season, which will run from Thursday, March 28 to Saturday, April 13. To kick off the festivities, a Spring Fling Benefit concert will be held at Trustees’ Garden this Saturday to raise funds for the Festival’s year-round residencies and educational programs.

This year, the festival’s tagline, “World of Music, One City,” perfectly captures the essence of the diverse lineup of acclaimed artists and performers from around the globe who will take the stage in downtown Savannah. Spread across fifteen different venues, including the iconic Johnny Mercer Theatre and the recently opened Savannah Cultural Arts Center, attendees can expect an extraordinary range of musical genres, from folk and bluegrass to fado and jazz.

According to Ryan McMaken, the artistic director of the Savannah Music Festival, there truly is “something for everybody” this year. The festival offers an incredible mix of music, allowing you to transition from a string quartet concert to an African performance and then from an Irish show to a jazz extravaganza, all in just one day.

The close-knit historic venues in Savannah contribute to the festival’s unique atmosphere, creating an interactive experience for concert-goers who desire an up-close and personal connection with their favorite artists. Savannah’s historical district’s compact nature also offers the perfect opportunity to explore the city, taking leisurely strolls between shows and discovering the local restaurants and charming spots along the way.

Savannah has truly established itself as a thriving festival city, and the Savannah Music Festival is a testament to its vibrant cultural scene. Don’t miss out on this incredible celebration of music and art. For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit
