Project 440 returns to savannah


We are kicking off our 25th anniversary season with a very special residency in local schools – Project 440, an organization dedicated to inspiring and educating young people through classical music, is returning to Savannah as part of SMF’s Music for Our Schools 2013-14 season. Musicians from the Philadelphia Orchestra, Harlem String Quartet, the Curtis Institute of Music and The Juilliard School will join Savannah natives and Project 440 co-founders Joseph Conyers and Blake Espy in a six-day residency September 16-21. Project 440 artists will conduct interactive engagement performances with local schools, designed to teach children about music fundamentals.

As part of their residency, the artists will also offer curriculum training and materials for local teachers to integrate music into every curriculum. In addition, Project 440 will also present their High School Seminar, designed to guide high school musicians through the college audition process and develop essential skills in entrepreneurship, networking, community engagement and interactive performance. 

Interested schools are encouraged to submit the Project 440 Residency Interest Form available here
