This spring, violinist Daniel Hope returns to Georgia for his 12th season as Associate Artistic Director of the Savannah Music Festival (March 19–April 4), which commissions and stages original, one-time only productions, collaborations and premieres over a three-week period each year. Under Hope's co-direction, it has been credited by the Chicago Tribune with "breaking the sound barriers" and is considered "one of the top music festivals in the world" (USA Today). The British violinist has curated a 10-concert chamber series for SMF 2015 that brings friends and colleagues from across North America and Europe to Savannah. As part of the popular "Daniel Hope & Friends" series, his collaborators will include the Emerson String Quartet, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and the Savannah Philharmonic, which the violinist will join for the Mendelssohn concerto (March 21).
