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 Symphony Hall. Educator classroom guides and supporting material maximize the impact of the experience for the child.
Preludes Concerts are offered in the Fall, allowing students Grades 2-3 to experience classical music performed by a live symphony.
Young People’s Concerts
YPCs are offered in the Spring, allowing students Grades 4-5 to explore a wide range of musical elements through classical music.
Students at the Symphony
Students at the Symphony is a FREE concert-going experience that provides tickets to students for each Jacksonville Symphony Masterworks concert via school partnerships. Pre-concert workshops with Symphony Teaching Artists, along with specialized booklets, teach students about the orchestra and connect content of each performance to general elements of musical knowledge and allow students to make cross-curricular connections.
