SAVANNAH, GA – June 19, 2020 – American Traditions Vocal Competition (ATC) is continuing in its highly successful tradition of Seasonal Salon Soirees with the introduction of an exciting new outdoor event series: Porch Parties. This innovative series is designed to provide first class music to music lovers all around the Savannah area community.
The first of several upcoming Porch Parties will be the live performance of Stars and Stripes, scheduled for Friday, July 3 from 6-8 p.m. at The Landings. USO Show Troupe Member and 2020 ATC Semifinalist, Sara Zoe Budnik, will perform in this uplifting concert which salutes the 244th birthday of the United States of America! A delicious picnic dinner will be provided and guests are asked to please BYOB.
As part of the organization’s “Giving Back to Savannah” initiative, the ATC will continue its Independence Day celebration with a free community concert at noon (12 p.m.) on Saturday, July 4 at 426 Abercorn Street on Calhoun Square.
“For safety precautions, events will be socially distanced–but there’ll still be room for plenty of great, outdoor fun,” enthuses ATC Artistic Director Mikki Sodergren. “We’re absolutely thrilled to be able to perform live again!”
Two more not to be missed Porch Parties are slated for the month of September! 2020 ATC Silver Medalist (and Georgia girl!), Jasmine Habersham, will present a concert of her favorite American music on Friday, Sept. 4 on Wilmington Island, and 2018 People’s Choice Award winner, Nat Zegree, will return to Savannah to perform a one-night only, one-man show on Sunday, Sept. 6 at Emerald Pointe.
