Welcome to the 2020/21 Season!
"Over the past five seasons, I have worked to expand the repertoire we have performed for you, and this season is no different. I am delighted to introduce another season of musical adventures filled with both familiar paths, and corners yet to be explored. Now more than ever it is important to look forward and find new experiences to enliven our spirits and stir our souls. We hope our 2020/21 season will bring excitement and joy to this time of uncertainty."
— Courtney Lewis, Music Director
Looking back, it is hard to believe we have not seen you in Jacoby Symphony Hall since March. COVID-19 has not only impacted all of us as individuals, but also the arts programs that we hold dear. We are thrilled to once again return to the Jacoby Symphony Hall stage on September 26 for Fanfare! Opening Night. We can’t wait to be back on the stage bringing you live symphonic music. With this great news comes a few changes we need you to know about before returning. Based on CDC guidelines and the results of the patron survey, the Symphony has developed a comprehensive list of safety protocols that will be in place during the 2020/21 season.
A most exciting highlight of the 2020/21 Masterworks season will be Gustav Mahler’s Song of the Earth, a semi-staged song cycle about love and life that is a glorious hybrid of Mahler’s symphonic and vocal styles, sung by two world-class vocalists. Symphony-goers will also have the chance to experience other greats from the German tradition, including Richard Wagner and Richard Strauss.
