Jacksonville Symphony schedules free community concerts starting Nov. 1


The Jacksonville Symphony is going out into the community and bringing the community to the Symphony.

The Jacksonville Symphony’s goal to engage community members through a variety of musical opportunities will be on full display the week of Nov. 1 with the Mayo Clinic Community Concert Series. There are four free community concerts scheduled, with a fifth in the spring, as well as the opening registration for the spring Jacksonville Symphony Civic Orchestra application.

Dates and locations for the community concerts:

Nov. 1: Artwalk at Hemming Park, 6:30 p.m.; The Bethel Church, 7 p.m.

Nov. 2: Seawalk Pavilion, 8 p.m.

Nov. 3: First Baptist Church in Fernandina Beach, 1600 S. 8th St., 12:30 p.m.

May 2: Artwalk at Hemming Park, 6:30 p.m. and 8:30p.m.

The community concert series is sponsored by Mayo Clinic. The Nov. 4 community concert is also made possible through help from ARIAS, Amelia Residents in Action for the Symphony.

Jacksonville Symphony assistant conductor Deanna Tham will be conducting the concerts throughout the community.
