Plan a Trip to the Symphony!
The Jacksonville Symphony provides a variety of educational concert opportunities throughout the school year that can enhance your music curriculum and educational experiences. Each fall and spring thousands of students are transported to Jacoby Symphony Hall to enjoy a 45- to 60-minute symphonic program. We encourage classrooms in grades 2 and up to visit the Jacksonville Symphony at Jacoby Symphony Hall.
Each fall and spring, elementary school students attend a 45-minute concert featuring the full Jacksonville Symphony at Jacoby Hall. Educator classroom guides and supporting material maximize the impact of the experience for the child. Preludes concerts are geared toward students in grades 2 and 3.
