Cirque de la Symphonie
The Cirque de la Symphonie delivers death-defying acrobatics, mind-blowing feats of balance, and chuckle-inducing achievements in clownery to a live soundtrack of symphonic classics. Teaming up with local orchestras as they embark on a world tour, the troupe treats audiences to what the SF Examiner describes as “beauty and delicacy . . . incredible precision and timing.” Such classic circus sights as aerial dancers scuttling up and down silks join a laughing strongman whose human weights are part of the act and the conductor as he controls dozens of musicians with nothing but a baton.
Symphony in 60: Sibelius—Symphony No. 2
This four-movement piece by the renowned Finnish composer has turned heads due to more than just its dramatic finale—many believe it was written as a call for Finland’s independence from Russia. Even though Sibelius himself never confirmed that, the symphony still has become so connected with the country’s struggle for independence that is popularly called the Symphony of Independence.
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.
