Now in its 8th season, Musical Explorers provides free curricula and learning resources to teachers and students grades K-2, and is designed for students to learn basic music skills while discovering different cultures and reflecting on their own communities. After exploring soul, country, and salsa music over the course of the semester, this free concert allows students, their families, and friends to meet the artists that have guided them on their musical journeys!
Savannah Music Festival provides Musical Explorers at no cost to participants through the generous support of donors and sponsors. Thank you!
