Gershwin—Rhapsody in Blue
This beloved work’s loopy opening clarinet glissando must have shocked audiences in 1924, heralding as it did a never-before-heard hybrid of classical music and jazz.
About 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 Jacksonville Symphony's dedicated venue, the highly harmonious Robert E. Jacoby Symphony Hall, there are Monday-night radio broadcasts.
