The Savannah Music Festival
What comes to mind when you think of Music?
Is it your favorite band, or maybe it is your favorite artist that comes to mind? Perhaps you are even thinking of your favorite genre, or of a time you went to a concert and rocked out with other fellow lovers of music, and everything it represents?
Music, when combined with a rhythm, intertwined with a melody and harmony, while being sung through lyrics, can be the comfort you need from a bad breakup. Or, it can name and speak all the words and feelings that you have in your heart, even those unspeakable thoughts that you have no way of expressing yourself, can be manifested through song. Music is a very strong outlet to so many things such as political, religious, emotional, radical, and conservative types of ideals and viewpoints.
Now, what comes to mind when you think of the Savannah Music Festival?
You should think of the name Rob Gibson. If you don't, well then you should, because he is the Executive and Artistic Director of the annual Savannah Music Festival. This means that he is the go to guy who selects and negotiates the makeup of each year's festival. This also means that he understands what music can and does represent to so many people. Rob Gibson's personal tastes, his industry contacts, and fund-raising savvy are what make him one of the most influential figures in the Coastal Empire’s music community.
This year the music festival is going to have a lot of diversity and genres to choose from. So many people are in town to hear and see all the music there is to offer. From Southern Americana to Jazz, Folk Jazz, Classical and Rock. This must mean that Savannah has a grip on what music is, and therefore is one of the top cities to perform in, host music festivals and celebrate every type of art known to man.
Whether the art is a form of painting, drawing, photography, collage, poster, music or any medium, no matter what it is, it can be performed here in this southern beauty of a city that is a nurturing mother to all art forms.
The Savannah Music Festival is a 17 day dedication to the art of music and those who clearly understand it. To the artists who have been able to master its strings, its arpeggio, its extremely high tenors, its crescendo and decrescendo, as well as its duets, duos, and dynamics of a piece that is being performed to an audience that hungers for a good musical rush.
Make sure to bring your expectations as well as your love for music, and come on out to the biggest music festival known in Savannah, from March 20, 2013 till April 6, 2013.
