“If you're going to live, leave a legacy. Make a mark on the world that can't be erased.” — Maya Angelou
The Jacksonville Symphony is now in its 69th season of enriching the human spirit through symphonic music thanks to the generosity and support of the North Florida community! During this decades-long history, families have shared their love of the Symphony by bringing their children and grandchildren to performances. This has created generations of patrons in our community that have experienced indispensable, powerful symphony presentations.
A Special Story
"How lucky are we to have such a great symphony here in Jacksonville! How lucky am I to have my husband, two daughters and son-in-law attending with me. Symphony nights are marked on all our calendars and we all look forward to attending together. We start the evening with dinner out and then it’s on to the performance. We may need to add two more seats to our subscription next year! Recently our 8 year-old grandson asked to attend with us and he not only stayed for the entire performance but asked to go again. So, the last time we attended we took him and our 5 year-old granddaughter! The only change we made to the evening was to get ice cream on our way home.
We aren’t huge classical music fans; we don’t know all the composers and sometimes aren’t sure when to clap. We attend for the experience - to listen to beautiful music performed by professional musicians - to broaden our horizons - to be together as a family - to be part of the community."
— Beth Jennison
