Savannah Music Festival (SMF) announces the lineup for its 2011 season, an expansive city-wide, multi-venue program showcasing a wide array of internationally acclaimed artists in over one hundred productions from March 24 to April 9. Held annually in historic downtown Savannah, this 22nd season of Georgia’s largest festival – described by The Times of London as “one of the best events around the world”– features two premieres, numerous festival debuts, and the return of several audience favorites from the realms of classical, jazz, Americana and world music. In addition to a wealth of concert programming, SMF gives attendees a chance to hit the dance floor with four dance parties – Cuban, Cajun, Funk, and Zydeco music – scheduled throughout the festival.
“We invite you to experience our acclaimed blend of the finest jazz, classical and international music traditions alongside indigenous southern genres,” remarks SMF Executive & Artistic Director Rob Gibson. “This unparalleled array of performances, combined with the wealth of culture and history that is unique to Savannah, make for an experience never to be forgotten.”
