Concerts Suspended Due to Coronavirus/COVID-19
UPDATE -- All concerts and events have been canceled through May 8th.
Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry announced that the Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts will be closed to the public as a precautionary measure surrounding Coronavirus/COVID-19. Due to this, the Jacksonville Symphony has canceled all concerts and events through April 1st. The health and well-being of our audience members, musicians, and staff are our highest priority, and we believe cancelling these concerts is the best course of action for our community and stakeholders.
Although the Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts will be closed to the public, the orchestra will continue to rehearse, and the administration will be in session. In response to the cancellation of concerts, the Symphony is looking into options that would allow concerts to be live streamed to the public.

This decision, which followed the announcement of the Symphony’s tour to Washington, D.C. for the SHIFT Festival being canceled, will have a significant negative financial impact for our organization. We are especially appreciative of our generous patrons who will consider donating tickets which they purchased for these concerts. Over the course of our history, the Jacksonville Symphony has overcome challenges and continued to thrive because of the strength and support of our community. Now as always, we are grateful for your extraordinary support.
