Family Concerts

Looking for the perfect family outing? One that combines great entertainment, fun and even a little culture? The pack up the kids and come downtown for a family concert with the Jacksonville Symphony. We’re presenting two this season: Lift Off! An Air and Space Adventure, and Appalachian Spring, featuring the Florida Ballet. But there’s much more to a family concert than what happens on stage! Arrive early for great family activities including the Instrument Zoo, during which the kids get to play instruments like the clarinet, violin, trumpet, bass, flute and drums. You might even learn you have a prodigy in the family.

This year’s two family concerts feature musical classics and creative storytelling that are sure to engage and enthrall children ages 4-10. Add to this concert experience by attending FREE pre-concert activities designed specifically for the theme of each concert. Activities include crafts, games and the Instrument Zoo presented by The Guild of the Jacksonville Symphony. Family concerts are used to establish a foundation for learning, reading and/or storytelling. This is essential in creating successful students, and ultimately, successful adults. Designed for ages 4-10, these concerts now include age-appropriate activities, privacy areas, and a relaxed environment to welcome infants and toddlers to create a fun experience for the entire family to learn and listen together. Pre-concert activities begin at 2:00 PM.
