Posted on: September 8, 2020

“The Savannah Philharmonic has announced plans for the modified 2020 version of Picnic in the Park” on October 18, reads an unsigned article last Tuesday (9/1) at radio station WTOC (Savannah, GA). “Picnic in the Park 2020 will feature a Halloween Mask-A-Rade theme, an Instagram contest, and more. WTOC will broadcast the event filmed at Trustees Garden…. ‘Many people have been asking us about our popular Picnic in the Park event,’ according to Katherine Poss, Development Director. ‘This event traditionally takes place during October in Historic Forsyth Park. This year and due to COVID, we have worked hard to find a way to safely present a best-loved community event to Savannah. I’m delighted to announce that the show will go on thanks to the generous support of the City of Savannah as well as The Trustees Garden and WTOC.’ This year’s Picnic in the Park features Keitaro Harada, SavPhil’s conductor, and vocalist Hannah Zazzaro…. The organization is encouraging everyone to decorate your picnic at home and enter a photo contest for prizes.” The Savannah Philharmonic also performed a free Labor Day concert entitled “Phil the Squares with Music,” featuring a brass quintet from the orchestra, which was streamed on Facebook Live.
