Philharmonic in the Streetz
Philharmonic in the Streetz was developed by the Philharmonic to bring diverse cultures together. This community-wide collaboration engages area neighborhood associations, schools, churches and the City of Savannah. These free family-friendly gatherings feature live musical performances in a block party-setting strategically produced in challenged neighborhoods throughout the city where families may not have the opportunity to attend orchestral concerts. Music has the power to bring people together, making these biannual celebrations the perfect opportunity to create positive dialogue and to raise awareness for the positive impacts of music.

Rhythm + Chakras
Raise your vibration through sound & movement during this special edition of Wine'd Down focusing on the Heart Chakra.
Join cellist Jessica Messere, drummer Nick Brooks & TLY teacher Jenn Cook for a musically-led exploration of the 4th, also known as the Heart or Anahata, Chakra. Anahata literally means «unhurt, unstruck and unbeaten». This energy center is the very core of our being, the Chakra that connects us to our Higher Self as well as to the world around us. It is your healing center, the source of compassion, unconditional love & joy.
As Jessica & Nick play live, setting a vibrational baseline & melody inspired by this Chakra, Jenn will guide you through a slower paced, intentional, heart-opening yoga practice.
Afterward, enjoy a well-deserved glass of wine as you enjoy the community & company of your fellow yogis.
