The JAX Symphony really does a very nice job in offering a wide variety of music for the JAX community. They have upgrade the musicians and also the programs. You will be glad you attended a performance.

Went to the "Bond & Beyond" performance and thought it was outstanding. The orchestra was smaller than I expected, but they are all very talented. The guest conductor, Michael Krajewski, was an absolute hoot! I was not expecting music and comedy, but he was very...More

The supply and demand conditions of the global classic music industry have given us a tremendous opportunity to enjoy very good and energetic performances in the cosy and well managed concert house. We will even get Rene Fleming coming to the January Gala!

Thoroughly enjoy the performances, with regards to the professionalism of the musicians and conductor. I am perplexed about the extremely uncomfortable seating. Is anything being done to enhance the comfort and space of the seats? We are not extremely large individuals and the seats seem to be very small. Our son is a large guy, stands approx. 6'5". He could not endure the full experience due to the extreme discomfort. It's sad that we have such a great orchestra and a really nice symphonic venue, yet the seats are miserable.

There are seats along the sides of the orchestra seating which are separate chairs. These can be adjusted to anyone's height. good luck....
Where were you seated? I am debating between Orchestra section row Y vs. Mezzanine Box seats for Porgy and Bess in February. I'm just not sure if the Mezzanine Box seats would be further away than the Orchestra section.... Decisions, decisions!

We've done both. For the New Year's Eve concert, we were in row M (just in front of the side exits) and the audio was wonderful there. We had box seats for the Christmas Pops concert on the 14th and they're just as good in... More
What is the view like from the Mezzanine Box seats? Would Orchestra Row Y allow for a better view at the same price?

To be honest, you cannot go wrong with the views no matter which ticket you decide to purchase. The last time I was there, I had seats in the Mezzanine Box and they were great as you are on the second story and you can still... More
