Get Happy! Judy Garland’s 100th

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’s Radiance: Piano Concerto No. 23

No other composer manages to blend lighthearted joy and profound beauty - and make it sound effortless - like Mozart. His 23rd and possibly most famous piano concerto exemplifies this to a T. Pianist Simone Dinnerstein, masterful at expressing the warmth and humanity of Mozart’s concertos, joins Courtney Lewis and the Symphony in the final installment of the season’s piano concerto mini-cycle on a program that opens with a piece brimming with optimism composed by Thomas Adès during the pandemic.

PRIDE NIGHT: Mozart & Juliet — Sym 60

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. The greatest love story of all time meets the gorgeous, sweeping melodies of Tchaikovsky. Escape the daily grind with Courtney Lewis and Jacksonville Symphony principal clarinetist Giovanni Bertoni.

The Music of Queen

“Early on in the Music of Queen concert, the Orpheum Theatre balcony started shaking. It wasn’t due to faulty construction, but enthusiastic audience members rocking out to ‘Another One Bites the Dust.’ By the time the visiting Windborne Music Band got to ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ the walls may have been shaking, too.” Be there when Jacoby Symphony Hall starts shaking to the music of one of the greatest rock bands ever.

Beethoven’s Ninth: Ode To Joy

“Friends, no more of these sounds. Let us sing more cheerful songs, more full of Joy!” The words of Beethoven’s Ninth could hardly be more timely, comforting and inspiring than they are right now. Courtney Lewis, a world-class quartet of soloists, the Symphony Chorus, and the Symphony point us toward the future in this most uplifting work of art. Also closing the season is the first in a multi-year series of commissions from some of today’s greatest living composers, a world premiere from the brilliant British and American composer, Tarik O’Regan.
