At the Savannah Music Festival’s 2019 season from March 28-April 13, “among notable concerts will be those by the festival’s trio of associate artistic directors: classical violinist Daniel Hope, mandolinist Mike Marshall and jazz pianist Marcus Roberts,” writes Bo Emerson in Tuesday’s (11/13) Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “Hope joins the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Robert Spano, for a performance of Beethoven’s Triple Concerto, also featuring cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. The Marcus Roberts Trio will appear with the Savannah Philharmonic Orchestra performing Gershwin, Stravinsky and Roberts’ original work, ‘Rhapsody in D.’ Marshall will perform with fellow mandolinist Caterina Lichtenberg and with longtime collaborator [violinist/fiddler] Darol Anger…. The all-female 10-piece brass ensemble tenThing will give two performances of classical music ranging from Lully and Handel to Copland and tango master Astor Piazzolla.” Other performers will include singer/songwriter Angélique Kidjo, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, jazz pianist Aaron Diehl, jazz guitarist Pat Metheny, Southern rocker Jeff Tweedy, flamenco guitarist Dani de Morón, trombonist Wycliffe Gordon, and singer-songwriter trio Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz and Aoife O’Donovan.
