Although the Jacksonville Symphony will put on a wide variety of concerts throughout season, there is nothing quite like Fanfare! The September 16th concert is not only an opportunity to listen to the incredible music created by Courtney Lewis and his team of musicians, but it is a first-look and an all-out symphonic celebration of the 2017-2018 season!

This year is the first year that the Jacksonville Symphony will throw a one-time event to celebrate the beginning of the season. Every season contains new music, new events and new faces as the Jacksonville Symphony continues to grow and evolve within the community. Our opening night is your opportunity to have a sneak-peak of what is to follow in the rest of the season.

Joining Music Director Courtney Lewis on stage is former Cambridge classmate, Armani brand representative and classical musician, Charlie Siem. Courtney and Charlie will reunite to fill Jacoby Hall with the wonders of Sibelius’ Violin Concerto. The season opener also features Tchaikovsky’s great Fifth Symphony.

Those joining the celebration can dress to impress with a splash of color to brighten the Symphony Hall and have their picture taken as they socialize on the red-carpet. The evening will end with a reception of champagne and dessert! Guests will have the opportunity to mingle with Symphony musicians, Courtney Lewis and Charlie Siem.

Do not miss out on the opportunity to celebrate the start of the Jacksonville Symphony’s best season yet.
