Since 1948, the Jacksonville Symphony has strived to enrich the human spirit through symphonic music.
It's ranked among the nation's top regional orchestras, and last year's attendance record of 255,000 individuals is sure to be broken this year as the schedule has been extended to thirty-eight weeks.
The orchestra plays at the Robert E. Jacoby Hall, which is known as an acoustic gem, and upcoming performances include:
Brahms & Bruckner: Symphony No. 3 & Symphony No. 7 (April 6 & 7)
When Brahms and Bruckner lived, pairing these two masters together would have been unthinkable. Today, orchestras don't hesitate to play their symphonies during the same performance as it makes for an incredible night of music.
Johannes Brahms was born in 1833, and fifty years later, he completed his Third Symphony which was first performed in the United States in 1884. As for Josef Anton Bruckner, he composed his Seventh Symphony between 1882 and 1883. It was first conducted by Arthur Nikisch, and the duration is about 64 minutes.
Windborne's Music of David Bowie (April 13 & 14)
David Bowie was a successful musician who sold millions of albums across the globe. He was gone far too soon, and the orchestra is paying tribute to both his life and music. Some of his most popular songs include "Let's Dance," "Modern Love," and "The Next Day."
EarShot (April 20)
This is a special presentation as the orchestra is partnering with four up-and-coming composers whose works were selected through Earshot, a program that pairs emerging composers with renowned symphonies. The audience will hear Night & Day, Blooming in the Long Dark Winter's Night, and more.
