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.

Wednesday, April 2 > Noam Pikelny & Friends/Becca Stevens Band

Noam Pikelny & Friends/Becca Stevens Band

About the performance

Another only-in-Savannah double bill showcases banjoist/composer Noam Pikelny (Punch Brothers, Leftover Salmon) brings an outstanding band (Bryan Sutton, Luke Bulla, Barry Bales & Jesse Cobb) for their Savannah debut. Pikelny's music propels bluegrass music forward with a grounded yet innovative approach that has earned him a GRAMMY nomination and the first Steve Martin Award for Excellence in Bluegrass Banjo. The New Yorker describes Noam Pikelny as "wide-ranging and restlessly imaginative." 

The other half of this program features the Becca Stevens Band. The daughter of musicians, North Carolina bred, NYC-based singer/guitarist Becca Stevens has already received copious praise from the likes of The New York Times, who described her as "a best-kept secret" and "impressively absorbing." Since receiving a BFA with high honors in vocal jazz and composition from The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York, Stevens has created music offering a beguiling blend of head and heart that resists easy categorization, drawing upon elements of pop, jazz or folk without limiting itself to the rules of any particular genre. Her closely-knit band includes Liam Robinson (accordion and keyboards), Chris Tordini (bass) and Jordan Perlson (drums), who complement Stevens' expressive work on guitar, ukulele and charango.
