SAVANNAH, GA – February 26, 2024 – The Savannah VOICE Festival (SVF) is partnering with other nonprofit organizations in Savannah to host community programs during the month of March. 

SVF will partner with Hospice Savannah to host “VOICES that Heal” on Monday, March 11 at their in-patient unit from 1:00-2:00 p.m. During this event, Hospice Savannah’s music therapist, Taylor Kersey will lead the attendees through an Irish-themed “listening lab” along with award-winning composer and Milnes VOICE Program collaborator, David Friedman.  

Then from 5:30-7:00 p.m. on March 11, SVF invites community partners to join them for “A Thought Exchange with David Friedman” at the Abraham Sheftall House located at 321 East York Street in Savannah. This mindfulness workshop, led by the famous composer himself, encourages attendees to be more aware of their surroundings with an out-of-the-box, new perspective and ways of thinking through issues of corporate creativity, productivity and the achievement of corporate and personal objectives. 

Savannah VOICE Festival will once again partner with the local nonprofit Historic Savannah Foundation (HSF) to host an Irish-themed installment of the now popular “Songs and Stories in the Squares,” which will take place at 4:00 p.m. Tuesday, March 12 beginning at Forsyth Park Fountain, then Madison Square, ending in Lafayette. During this free event, HSF Education and Research Associate Kendall Graham will give a brief presentation about the history of each square on the tour while SVF artists sing a selection of music to get attendees in the St. Patrick’s Day spirit. 

Maria Zouves, SVF’s co-founder and president explains, “Since our inception, Savannah VOICE Festival has enjoyed working with the community and its many other non-profits, adding our music to their wonderful initiatives. We love moving into the spring season with these lovely and meaningful events.”
