The Civic Orchestra of Jacksonville is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit classical music orchestra. We are amateur and professional musicians who perform free concerts throughout the greater Jacksonville community.
The March 12, 2023 concert will be a very special program.
Hosted by the North Florida School for Special Education, this sensory sensitivity concert is for students from across the First Coast of all abilities and with special needs that make sitting quietly through a concert difficult.
Everyone is welcome to join us!
Please see below for details.

Featuring music of many different tempos and textures, this Sensory Sensitivity concert will be held in the Dorothy and Lee Thomas Equestrian Barn at the Delores Barr Weaver Therapeutic Equestrian Center, which is nestled among the school’s Mill Creek campus. The barn provides a covered area for the orchestra and guests and has an adjacent viewing area under a live oak tree, allowing for anyone who might want to move around or dance or even giggle the opportunity to do so.
