We had great seats, the acoustics are excellent. The orchestra is wonderful and I feel very relaxed listening to them. I also love to watch each player and how much they love what they do !!!

An outstanding performance by a truly wonderful group of musicians. The horn section was especially noteworthy. Do not miss any opportunity to hear this fine group.

My husband and I enjoyed the conductor, the orchestra, and the music. The patrons were quiet, dignified, and well-dressed. A very pleasant way to spend a Saturday evening.

Brilliant , great evening in the park in palm coast listening to the Jacksonville symphony orchestra playing everything from Bernstein and Masons West Side Story to Les Miserables to the Sound of Music. The evening sky was perfect and a warm evening to enjoy lovely food with friends listening to a great orchestra.

Jacksonville has a talented and enthusiastic orchestra. Their repertoire is eclectic with programs for varied musical tastes.

Mid sized orchestra with big orchestra sound. Enjoyed Courtney Lewis, guest Conductor - He's as fun to watch as he is to play for.
