Keitaro Harada Returns to Georgia As New Savannah Philharmonic Music Director

The Savannah Philharmonic Orchestra's new season begins this Saturday, Sept. 14, with a new music director: Keitaro "Kei" Harada. 

Harada grew up in Tokyo, but he's no stranger to Georgia. He studied at Mercer University in Macon, where he was assistant conductor of the Macon Symphony. After that, he picked up the baton for four seasons as associate conductor of the Cincinnati Symphony. 


Sarah Zaslaw is the host of GPB's Nightcap. She welcomed Harada back to Georgia and spoke about his new role.
