The Deal

  • The Hot Sardines on January 22

January Program

  • La Mer: Debussy’s impressionistic and tempestuous La Mer may have top billing, but his influence may also be felt on another piece on the program—Fauré’s Pelléas et Mélisande is incidental music to a play that Debussy later adapted into a sweeping tragic opera.
  • Tapestry: The Carole King Songbook: Tony-nominated vocalist Liz Callaway pays tribute to Carole King in symphonic rearrangements of such pop standards as “It’s Too Late,” “You’ve Got a Friend,” and “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow.”
  • Wild, Wild West: The orchestra pulls on their stompin’ boots for a concert themed around rooting, tooting, and shooting. Expect singing, dancing, and even a tall tale or two.
  • The Hot Sardines: A hot jazz octet elevated by singer Elizabeth Bougerol’s Parisian accent, the Hot Sardines throw back to old-fashioned jazz even when accompanied by a symphony orchestra.
  • Mozart’s Great Mass: Mass in C minor wasn’t just Mozart’s “great” mass—it was his last. Composed in the early 1780s after his tenure as the church musician of the Salzburg Cathedral, the unfinished work is scored for two sopranos, one tenor, and one bass.

Jacksonville Symphony

The Jacksonville Symphony held its first concert in 1950. Tickets were $1 each. Although inflation has taken its course in the half-century since, the Jacksonville Symphony has kept an eye on accessibility. They've partnered with entertainers ranging from Jack Benny (back in 1970) to Luciano Pavarotti to popular adult-contemporary musicians such as Jim Brickman. Each year, they give tens of thousands of schoolchildren the chance to participate in youth-oriented symphony events. And for music-lovers who can't make it to the JSO's dedicated venue, the highly harmonious Robert E. Jacoby Symphony Hall, there are Monday-night radio broadcasts.
