The Savannah Music Festival is dedicated to presenting a world-class celebration of the musical arts by creating timeless and adventurous productions that stimulate arts education, foster economic growth, and unite artists and audiences in Savannah. It is the largest musical arts event in Georgia and one of the most distinctive cross-genre music festivals in the world.



Since 2003, the Savannah Music Festival has grown a music education program that is unlike that of any arts organization in the region. It is rooted in our belief that the arts are fundamental to the cognitive, affective, physical and intellectual development of all children. These programs reach more than 12,000 children each year throughout Savannah and the surrounding five counties.



There are many meaningful ways to get involved with the Savannah Music Festival. The success of our organization is driven by a supportive community of patrons, interns, volunteers and partner organizations. Find out how you can get involved.



Each year, ticket sales amount to only 40% of SMF’s annual $3 million budget. As a non-profit organization, generous support from dedicated individuals, corporations, government entities and foundations enables us to perpetuate our unique artistic vision and strive toward future goals. With a tax-deductible contribution, you can provide vital assistance to our community music education programs and help keep the music playing at SMF!



Savannah, the historic riverside birthplace of Georgia, was settled in 1733 and is one of the few major cities in the South with antebellum charm and architecture remaining intact. The Historic District with its public squares provide endless amounts of strolling and exploring.

Guitar Heaven: Julian Lage & Chris Eldridge/Frank Vignola & Vinny Raniolo

About the performance

Four virtuoso guitarists with diverse backgrounds share this only-in-Savannah double bill. Though they will perform in separate duos, both Julian Lage and Frank Vignola have held the guitar post in Mark O'Connor's "Hot Swing" Trio at different times--and each put their stamp on the music. Julian Lage is joined by Punch Brothers guitarist Chris Eldridge for the Savannah debut of their new acoustic duo project. The majesty of the acoustic dreadnought guitar is uplifted by this collaboration, with each player equally keyed into the instrument's sustain, dynamic range and depth of tone. The other half of the performance is a set of music performed by Frank Vignola and Vinny Raniolo.
