- Hagen, Stern, and Shostakovich: Hagen—as in violinist William Hagen—and Stern—as in conductor Michael Stern—join forces to bring to life three pieces: a Verdi overture, a Shostakovich (No. 10, to be precise), and Hagen’s performance of Bruch’s violin concerto.
- Baby Boomers: Music of the ’60s: A sextet of vocalists joins the JSO Pops for a spirited concert of unforgettable ’60s tunes. Expect to hear bits from the British Invasion and the tie-dye era, Simon & Garfunkel selections, Motown classics, and more.
- Joshua Bell: The violinist known for his viral YouTube prank (oh, and lots of Grammys) draws majestic strains from a 300-year-old Stradivarius violin with a technique that landed him a debut at Carnegie Hall before he was old enough to rent a car.
- Dr. Seuss’ “Green Eggs and Ham”: In this entry in the JSO’s Family Series, the symphony combines familiar, bubbly tunes with Seuss’ unforgettable parable about acceptance.
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.
