Jacksonville Symphony Chorus
With some of the First Coast area’s finest voices, Jacksonville Symphony Chorus members come from all walks of life who share the spirit of singing great choral music. With a three-decade tradition of making great music with the Jacksonville Symphony, the roster also includes many professional musicians, skilled amateur performers and students. Since 2012, the Chorus had been led by esteemed choral director and composer Donald McCullough.
The Jacksonville Symphony Chorus celebrated its 30th season with a performance at Lincoln Center in November 2014. Singers from the Jacksonville Symphony Chorus traveled to New York to form the core of a 120-member chorus under Mr. McCullough’s direction, presented by Distinguished Concerts International New York (DCINY).
The all-volunteer Jacksonville Symphony Chorus has sung for many landmark Symphony events. Performance highlights include Mahler’s “Resurrection” Symphony for the tenth anniversary of Jacoby Symphony Hall and Orff’s “Carmina Burana” for the Jacksonville Symphony’s first-ever commercial recording. The Chorus has also sung in each of the Jacksonville Symphony’s annual grand opera productions.
Auditions for the Jacksonville Symphony Chorus will be held on Saturday, September 9, 2017 at 9:30am. Auditions are by appointment only. Email Jill Weisblatt, Chorus Manager for specific information and to secure a timeslot.
