JSYO Major/Minor

Join the Jacksonville Symphony Youth Orchestras for the Major/Minor performance in Jacoby Symphony Hall!

Bette, Babs & Beyond

The Symphony and pop/Broadway singers celebrate the stories and songs of the legendary ladies of music: Bette Midler, Barbara Streisand, Tina Turner, Aretha, Dolly Parton and more. Singing their GRAMMY and OSCAR-winning hits such as “Wind Beneath My Wings,” “I Will Survive,” “Don’t Rain on my Parade” and “The Way We Were.” You’ll be humming these tunes for days.

The Late Romantics

On Christmas morning 1870, Richard Wagner’s new wife, Cosima, awakened to quite the surprise: 15 musicians on the staircase outside of her bedroom performing a new piece Richard had written for her birthday. In this instrumental pastorale Wagner lovers will hear many favorite horn calls and bird songs from the composer’s Ring-Cycle opera, Siegfried. Richard Strauss’ Le bourgeois gentilhomme Suite – a stark departure from the composer’s traditionally High Romantic work – is a Neoclassical gem with lively material compiled from his incidental music for a play about a nouveau riche man hoping his riches will elevate him to the status of gentleman.

Patriotic Pops — Coffee

The Symphony commemorates Memorial Day and honors those in the U.S. military who made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting the freedom we cherish. Sing along to your favorite patriotic selections from The Star-Spangled Banner to the themes of the great branches of our military. One of the most inspiring events of the season.

The Great Schubert Symphony

Franz Schubert revered Beethoven, and even attended the premiere of the giant’s Ninth Symphony. Schubert’s greatest tribute to the master was to write a grand symphony - his own Ninth. Fellow composer Robert Schumann offered these praises: “ enthralls its listeners, drawing them along to the last joyous note.” The strings of the Jacksonville Symphony shine in the opening work, Elgar’s Introduction and Allegro. Join the Symphony family for a musical toast as we close the season with Schubert’s final symphony.
