Patriotic Pops — Coffee

Join the Symphony as we celebrate Veteran’s Day and honor those who have protected the freedoms that make America great. Hear your favorite selections from The Star-Spangled Banner to the themes of each of the branches of our military, with a touch of the Andrews Sisters for good measure. It promises to be one of the most inspiring events of the year. 

A Journey Through Beethoven — Coffee

Beethoven wrote nine epic symphonies. We couldn’t possibly choose just one for this program, so Gonzalo Farias is set to take you through a series of highlights from several of these titanic works, each revealing a different face of the master and his brilliance. Why have one entrée when you can have a taste of everything on the menu?

Holiday Pops — Coffee

Jacksonville’s favorite holiday tradition is back! After hearing many beloved holiday songs, you’re sure to be in the spirit of the season. And don’t miss Florida’s only indoor snowfall. Featuring the Symphony, guest singers, dancers from Douglas Anderson School of the Arts, and more. Bring the entire family to celebrate the season together.

Classic Broadway — Coffee

Return to the golden age of Broadway. Hear classic Broadway songs from The Sound of Music, Oklahoma, South Pacific, Porgy and Bess, Carousel, and many more. The Symphony and Broadway stars Ashley Brown and Jordan Donica will bring back wonderful memories of the best music from The Great White Way.

The Fairy & The Phoenix — Coffee

Myths and legends take flight in this program. From the Fairy King and Queen of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream to the rising phoenix of Stravinsky’s ultimate Russian fairytale, The Firebird, every note from the stage is sure to paint a colorful picture.

John Williams & Steven Spielberg — Coffee

Their partnership began with Sugarland Express in 1974 and has totaled an amazing 28 films.

Together they’ve won three OSCARS, three Golden Globes and 12 GRAMMYs. Hear John Williams’ fantastic music and relive some of the greatest movies ever made.

Get Happy! Judy Garland’s 100th — Coffee

In her 47 years of life, Judy Garland became an American icon as an actress and singer. Now Joan Ellison, who Cabaret Scenes Magazine calls, “a singer who’s been obsessed with Judy Garland since childhood, who is Judy-esque in appearance, and who’s a near voice double for her idol” joins the Symphony to celebrate Judy’s 100th birthday. Hear Joan sing classics like “Over the Rainbow,” “For Me and My Gal,” “The Man That Got Away” and many more. Whether you’re a Garland fan or not, you won’t want to miss this magical concert.

Mozart & Juliette — Coffee

Peace and love are the name of the game in this program. Mozart’s final and 625th composition that he completed before his untimely death makes the clarinet sing like the human voice, and the greatest love story of all time (other than Kanye and Kim) meets the gorgeous, sweeping melodies of Tchaikovsky. Escape the daily grind with Courtney Lewis and Jacksonville Symphony principal clarinetist Giovanni Bertoni.
