Christmas Concert

The Orchestra is GREAT. The facility is first rate with wonderful acoustics. The offerings at intermission are a bit over priced.

I went for the first time on January 13, 2017. Since then I went back once to see "Violins of Hope!" What an amazing experience. We are attending this weekend to see "Lang Lang" and I can not wait. The music and atmosphere have been perfect both times. Well worth every cent! I feel the drinks are a little over... More

For the last several years, my family and I have made it a point to get to the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra's Holiday Pops concert because it is always a good time, and this year was no exception. We look forward to how they change up the kinds of music they play each year and how they incorporate dance into the... More

We have been to this theater numerous times and always had a great time. It's clean and doesn't have bad odor like others theaters downtown.

Too many people associated the Symphony with just classical music. Last night my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed a Pops concert featuring the music of Journey, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Loggins and Messina, Hall and Oates, Chicago, Paul McCarthy, Billy Joel, and many more. The Symphony was accompanied by 3 great singers. The symphony hall was packed and everyone in... More

Our tickets were in the balcony center and we were surrounded by elementary school students (evening performance) who kicked seatbacks, giggled, used their phones, and totally overshawdowed our enjoyment of the music and performers. We spoke with the teachers during the intermission and they apologized. The students had come on buses and spent the day in Jacksonville. They had eaten... More

The orchestra offers a lovely night out and spectacular music! Would recommend people to visit when they have concert series going. That way you can hear some of the most talented musicians !

This is a gem of an orchestra with dynamic conductor and a bright spot in the cultural scene of Duval County & region! According to experts the acoustics are superb; I agree at the most basic level. Last night attended Dream of Gerontius oratorio with great symphonic chorus & student chorale group from UNF & 3 distinguished soloists. Lovely!

Thank Robert S
