We were visiting friends in Ponte Vedra and were treated to an evening at the Symphony in Jacksonville. What a fun and interesting evening we had! They offer what they call “Symphony in 60.” This evening, it was a special event to thank the symphony’s ticket subscribers, which included a free happy hour with cocktails, a presentation by Courtney Lewis...

Went to the "Bond & Beyond" performance and thought it was outstanding. The orchestra was smaller than I expected, but they are all very talented. The guest conductor, Michael Krajewski, was an absolute hoot! I was not expecting music and comedy, but he was very entertaining.

The Jacksonville Symphony performs in Jacoby Hall, a beautiful, modern facility at the Times Union Center, which sits on the St. Johns River in downtown Jacksonville.

The supply and demand conditions of the global classic music industry have given us a tremendous opportunity to enjoy very good and energetic performances in the cosy and well managed concert house. We will even get Rene Fleming coming to the January Gala!

My wife and I just attended the Bond and Beyond Pop Concert and were very disappointed in the show. The above rating reflects our opinion of the overall concert but mainly the music selection and the guest singer. The Jacksonville Symphony itself was OUTSTANDING as usual as was Michael Krajewski, the conductor. It was our understanding that the music selection... More

The symphony is an average orchestra but did an adequate performance. It might be better off avoiding imitation of better known orchestras in the large cities and try something like the Boston Pops programs.

We have had great times at the symphony, why not try it yourself ? Parking is good, access to the venue is easy.

We saw "Bugs Bunny at the Symphony", which was nothing but laugh out loud fun while listening to beautiful music. Lovely theatre but not stuffy. A place for all ages. They even had a photo area with props!
