The Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra offers a myriad entertainment options. And while they certainly live up to their reputation as one of the finest purveyors of classical music with plenty of Beethoven to spare, they also cover plenty of other musical bases. They pay tribute to the music of Ray Charles, Eric Clapton and even the music of Woodstock. For kids, they have shows to help introduce the Symphony sound. Dr. Seuss and the Spooktacular are two shows that spring to mind. In short, Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra offers up something for almost every musical taste.
