Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry announced that the Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts will be closed to the public as a precautionary measure surrounding Coronavirus/COVID-19. Due to this, the Jacksonville Symphony has canceled concerts through April 1.
Although the Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts will be closed to the public, the orchestra will continue to rehearse, and the administration will be in session. In response to the cancellation of concerts, the Symphony is looking into options that would allow concerts to be livestreamed to the public.
List of Canceled Jacksonville Symphony Performances:
• March 13/14 – Give My Regards to Broadway
• March 19/20 – Copland and Ellington
Symphony in 60 and Coffee performances
• March 20/21 – SHIFT: Kennedy Center Bound
• March 29 – Peter and the Wolf
Additionally, the Symphony’s tour to Washington, D.C. for SHIFT: A Festival of American Orchestras was canceled by the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts based on public health recommendations by D.C. officials.
