Jacksonville Symphony Chorus
The Jacksonville Symphony Chorus celebrated its 30th season with a performance at Lincoln Center in November 2014. Singers from the Jacksonville Symphony Chorus traveled to New York to form the core of a 120-member chorus under Mr. McCullough’s direction, presented by Distinguished Concerts International New York (DCINY).
The all-volunteer Jacksonville Symphony Chorus has sung for many landmark Symphony events. Performance highlights include Mahler’s “Resurrection” Symphony for the tenth anniversary of Jacoby Symphony Hall and Orff’s “Carmina Burana” for the Jacksonville Symphony’s first-ever commercial recording. The Chorus has also sung in each of the Jacksonville Symphony’s annual grand opera productions.
