Rockin' the French horn!

The Jax Symphony truly impresses every time I see them. Great strings and percussion, but the horn section really stands out and is tops in the country.

As season ticket holders for the Pops and Masterworks series for many years, we have enjoyed the JSO in a wide variety of performances along with the special guest artists or just by themselves. The tickets can be exchanged for another performance if you 't can't make it to one of the performances and parking is a bargain...unless you can... More

Went to see Pops in Love at Jacoby Hall and I can tell you our JSO did themselves proud. Besides the wonderful music, there was the "show" that the conductor Stuart Chafetz put on. The songs were perfect for Valentine's Day and the gentleman that sang the Phantom's selections was spectacular. Wonderful afternoon of music.

This is a spectacular performance. I thought it had no chance of living up to the performance of the Dallas Symphony. I was wrong. You'll absolutely love this. Make a space on your calendar and make sure you attend.

My husband and I had season tickets to the Discovery Series of the Jacksonville symphony Orchestra in the late 1990's and early 2000's. We thoroughly enjoyed the performances; the symphony orchestra is a top-level professional organization! Please visit when you are in Jacksonville!!

A superior orchestra that everyone should be proud of in Jacksonville! An outstanding group of musicians with talented conductors who provide the highest quality of symphonic and pop music. The hall is fabulous as well and attending their performances is always a treat to the soul.

LOVE our Jacksonville Symphony! My husband and I have been attending concerts at least once a year (sometimes twice) since 1998 and the concerts are always outstanding. The Times-Union Center is a custom designed top-notch venue for the symphony (in one hall) and Broadway shows (in another hall) and located right on our beautiful river. Be sure to come a... More
