Start off the Symphony in 60 Series by celebrating Jacksonville’s Pride Month with a concert featuring classical ‘hits’ hand-selected by Music Director Courtney Lewis. Enjoy a toast during the preconcert cocktail hour, then revel in driving dance rhythms from John Adams’ Nixon in China, Richard Wagner’s wild Tannhäuser Bacchanale and three fiery Latin dances from Manuel de Falla’s ballet, The Three-Cornered Hat.
Seasoned listeners and those new to symphonic music will be equally entertained by the Symphony in 60 Series. Enjoy a casual and fun cocktail hour before the 60-minute concert, introductions to each musical piece by the conductor and a chance to make new friends. This series provides an exceptional experience for all.
