Health & Safety Protocols The safety of our patrons, musicians and staff remains our top priority. Based on CDC guidelines and the results of the patron survey, we have developed a comprehensive list of safety protocols that will be in place when we return in September. We will physically distance in the Hall, reducing our seating capacity from nearly 1,800 to 582. Patrons will be required to wear masks in most parts of the Times-Union Building, including Jacoby Symphony Hall, and there will be no intermissions at any Symphony concert. VIEW Dvořák’s New World JAN 22/23 at 7:30 PM Associate Conductor Gonzalo Farias takes the podium in his Jacksonville Symphony Masterworks debut! The roots of the second movement of Antonín Dvořák’s Ninth Symphony and the famous English horn tune, sometimes known as “Goin’ Home,” can be traced to Dvořák’s exposure to African-American spirituals. Jessie Montgomery’s tribute to our National Anthem’s 200th anniversary opens the program. TICKETS Virtual Concert [LIVE] Friday, JAN 22 at 7:30 PM If you won't be joining us in the Hall this weekend, we hope you'll tune in virtually for Dvořák’s New World, live from Jacoby Symphony Hall, featuring Associate Conductor Gonzalo Farias making his Masterworks debut.

Dvořák’s New World

Antonín Dvořák spent the summer of 1893 in Iowa, and it was America’s endearing, wide-open terrain that inspired the spacious sounds of his Ninth Symphony. The roots of the second movement’s famous English horn tune, sometimes known as “Goin’ Home,” can be traced to Dvořák’s exposure to African-American spirituals. Jessie Montgomery’s tribute to our National Anthem’s 200th anniversary opens the program. Associate Conductor Gonzalo Farias takes the podium in his Jacksonville Symphony Masterworks debut.

Beethoven’s Eroica

The radical opening of Beethoven’s 1803 “Eroica” Symphony is so unlike anything that came before it, some say it is one of the earliest hallmarks of music’s Romantic Era. Strauss’ Metamorphosen, composed in the last days of the European theater of World War II, is an elegy to the passing of that same cultural era. Join Courtney Lewis and the Symphony for a visit to the genesis and twilight of German Romanticism.
