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 45 - 60 minute symphony programs. We encourage classrooms in grades 1 and up to visit the Jacksonville Symphony at Jacoby Symphony Hall.

In light of our health & safety protocols, the Jacksonville Symphony will not offer fieldtrip or Students at the Symphony opportunities in the 2020/21 season.
