Escher String Quartet

PAUL HINDEMITH Trauermusik

The Savannah Philharmonic (SPO) and the Savannah Music Festival (SMF) are teaming up to bring an extraordinary program to Skidaway Island. The SPO is joined by world-renowned violist (and SMF’s Associate Artistic Director for Chamber Music) Philip Dukes, and the acclaimed NYC-based Escher String Quartet. From Sir Edward Elgar’s virtuosic Introduction and Allegro composed at the beginning of the 20th century, to the witty, soulful, and infectiously rhythmic Delights and Dances by contemporary Oscar-nominated composer Michael Abels, this concert is not to be missed.

After the concert the audience is invited to mingle with the musicians and enjoy complimentary light appetizers and a cash bar.
Golf cart parking available.

Tickets will go on sale in September.
