Sept. 5– What better way to enjoy the cooler evenings on the brink of the fall season than to listen to a full symphony concert outdoors.
The 26th annual Sunset Symphony will play Saturday at 5:30 p.m. on the lawn of historic Cherry Mansion in Savannah.
The free concert will be performed by the Germantown Symphony.
“We’re really excited about our 26th year of having the Sunset Symphony in Savannah,” said Joseph Thomas, president of the Savannah Arts Commission. “It’s a wonderful event and I invite everyone to take advantage of the opportunity.”
Conducting the Germantown Symphony Orchestra will be Maestro Ronald Vernon, Professor Emeritus with the Department of Music at the University of Mississippi.
This year’s pops program, “What’s That Jazz,” features several popular numbers including Scott Joplin’s “Maple Leaf Rag;” songs from the International Dixieland Jamboree, “Bill Bailey” and “When the Saints Go Marching In;” and Glenn Miller’s “Moonlight Seranade.”
