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!

Jacksonville is blessed with an incredible Symphony Orchestra , lead by conductor, COURTNEY LEWIS. The wide variety of presentations from the Masterworks, Pops, Coffee and Matinee Series provide something for everyone who enjoys music. If you are coming to the city please check the programs available for those dates... you won't be disappointed!

It gives you the feeling of a mix of small town and modern city symphony orchestra. I enjoyed the humor touch the director puts into the concert.

I love all kinds of music. You can call me a music geek. I play clarinet, piano, organ, handbells and absolutely love the symphony.

I was actually brought to tears at one point I was so moved. I have never seen/heard a symphony live before & words can't express how much I loved this experience.

We make it a tradition to attend at least 2 holiday performances and 2 or more performances during the regular season. We particularly love the Pops series. The symphony never disappoints!
