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. More than one third of the education and community engagement audience is comprised of students who are able to participate free-of-charge in our symphonic movement thanks to financial contributions form generous patrons.

The Jacksonville Symphony’s Sound Investment Initiative strives integrate quality education and engagement throughout the community. Programs range from Musical Storybooks for Pre-Kingergarten and Kindergarten students to Pizza With the Players for middle and high school students.
