SAVANNAH - The City of Savannah's Department of Cultural Affairs announced that it will be presenting a series of free live concerts in city squares throughout the summer. Sixteen concerts are planned from June 4 through August 1. Concerts will be held Wednesdays and Fridays at 11:30 a.m. and will alternate between Johnson and Wright Squares.
The concert series is produced by New Arts Ensembles, a Savannah-based group that showcases some regional musicians.
"This is a great opportunity for both musicians and audience members to share great music without the formality of a performance hall," said Richardo Ochoa, NAE founder and director. "It is also a great summer activity for families. The musicians involved love to perform for children, which is something that they don't often get the opportunity to do in an evening performance."
The concert series will kick-off June 4 with modern jazz group Silver Lining in Johnson Square. The concert line up also includes The Roger Moss Quintet (Jazz/Latin), the David Duckworth Trio (Jazz), vocalist Claire Frazier (Jazz), and Bottles ën Cans (Blues).   
Concerts are free and open to the public. For information and a complete concert schedule, call 912-651-6417 or visit For information on NAE, call 912-596-1360 or visit
