Murphy most recently served as director of accounting for Central India Christian Mission, and is looking forward to using her skillset to support and serve the Savannah Philharmonic.

The mission of the Savannah Philharmonic, which kicks off its 2017-18 season on Sept. 16, is to provide the highest level of musical performances and educational programs featuring the highest caliber of professional musicians, a volunteer chorus, and internationally acclaimed soloists. The nonprofit organization aims to exhilarate, educate, and enrich a large and diverse audience in the greater Savannah community.

“The Philharmonic is key to providing Savannah with full-season orchestral music, student education and year around music therapy in local hospitals and we are excited to add Margaret to our team,” Executive Director Terri O’Neil said. “Her expertise in all facets of business and accountancy will certainly assist us in carrying out our mission and growing our community programs.”
