Legacy Giving

Become a Cadenza Society member by including a gift to the Jacksonville Symphony in your estate plans.

Be recognized for your generosity! Cadenza Society Members receive recognition in Encore! (when available), as well as invitations to:

    • An exclusive Cadenza Society gathering with Music Director Courtney Lewis
    • Premium Open Rehearsals
    • Annual Donor Appreciation Night

In addition to these benefits, you and your loved ones can enjoy immediate and long-term advantages of gift planning, depending on the structure of your gift. If you choose to name the Jacksonville Symphony in an insurance policy, will, living trust or as a beneficiary of another asset, view suggested language.

Including the Jacksonville Symphony in your estate will ensure that the orchestra you love will be able to keep making vibrant music for generations to come. Your support means you’re part of our Symphony family, and also qualifies you to be a member of the Cadenza Society. If you wish to name Jacksonville Symphony in your will or estate plan, we should be named as: The Jacksonville Symphony Association, a nonprofit organization with a principal business address of 300 Water Street, Suite 200, Jacksonville, FL 32202. Tax Identification Number: 59-6002520

Have you already designated the Symphony as a beneficiary in your estate?

To let us know of your plans or to request more information, please contact President & CEO Steven Libman at [email protected], or Associate Vice President of Advancement & External Affairs Michelle Barth at [email protected].

Meet Hazel Peters

Cadenza Society Member

“The Symphony’s presentations are very first class,” she added. “I would love for more people to see the Symphony and hear it. We shouldn’t take it for granted - especially the caliber of musicians who play in the orchestra.” Though Hazel and Joe are relatively young, they are already thinking about the future and how they would like to support organizations that are important to them. The Symphony is part of their planned giving. “It’s about sustaining it for generations. I know that the Symphony would welcome any amount to help in that effort.”

"There are three loves in my life: God, my family and the Jacksonville Symphony. I give annually and have included the Symphony in my estate because I want generations to come to experience the joy I've received from hearing great music performed by great musicians."

Ruth generously sponsors all of the guest artists on the Florida Blue Masterworks series.
