Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra
The Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra ranks among the nation’s top regional orchestras and is vital to the City of Jacksonville’s continued growth. From September through May, the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra performs at the Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts and in community venues throughout the First Coast and statewide. The Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra opens its 2014-15 season with the debut of COURTNEY LEWIS as music director designate. Courtney begins his first full season as music director in 2015-16. Also in 2014-15, the Orchestra will be joined by Audra McDonald and Paul Williams, and will stage Gershwin’s opera Porgy and Bess and Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty ballet.
An American orchestra with its own dedicated concert hall, the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra’s home is the acoustically superb Robert E. Jacoby Symphony Hall. As reported by the Palm Beach Daily News, "… we surely deserve and need to have a full time orchestra [in south Florida]. We can only hope that it would be as good as the Jacksonville Symphony."
Beyond the stage, the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra is an outstanding community partner, serving four county school districts and collaborating with a wide range of organizations. And close to 2,000 music lovers in the community are members of Symphony volunteer groups.
