The 2023 classical series begins with the return of the renowned Zurich Chamber Orchestra with Music Director Daniel Hope. Joined by SMF’s Thomas V. & Susan G. Reilly Associate Artistic Director, violist, educator, and Hope’s longtime collaborator and friend Philip Dukes, Hope presents a program culminating with Tchaikovsky’s magnificent Serenade for Strings. 

In the 1940s, music student Edmond de Stoutz used his free time to regularly meet with a number of friends and make music together. The joy of pursuing their creative ideals and the group’s shared passion for chamber music gave rise to the formation of a chamber orchestra. This led to the first public concert in Zurich in 1945. Seventy-six years later the Zurich Chamber Orchestra is one of the leading ensembles of its kind. 

No stranger to Savannah audiences as SMF’s Associate Artistic Director from 2004-2019, British violinist Daniel Hope has enjoyed a thriving international solo career for more than 30 years. He currently serves as Artistic Director of Dresden’s Frauenkirche Cathedral, President of the Beethoven-Haus Bonn and Music Director of both the Zurich and New Century Chamber Orchestras. Now living with his family in Berlin, he plays the 1742 “ex-Lipínski” Guarneri del Gesù.

SMF Associate Artistic Director Philip Dukes is recognized as one of the world’s leading viola players, with a career spanning over 30 years as an accomplished concerto soloist, recitalist and chamber musician. In demand worldwide as a director/conductor/soloist, Dukes holds guest teaching positions at the Royal Academy of Music in London, Wells Cathedral School and is also Artistic Director at Marlborough College. He is also a member of the Wigmore Hall Soloists ensemble.
