Whether it’s free community concerts, master classes with guest soloists or our free ticket program that allows children and teens to hear Masterworks concerts, the Symphony is committed to bringing music to all the residents of Northeast Florida. Over the course of a single season, the Symphony is able to reach over 180,000 students and community members in Northeast Florida through live performances, cultural services, symphonic engagement and the captivating web of music weaved on the concert stage.
