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.

A note from our President

We are delighted to let you all know that we are planning a full schedule of rehearsals and performances for 2022. The Covid-19 pandemic has touched each of us. Our 2021 season was virtual and consisted of many and varied educational videos, which are described below. We know that there is no substitute for a live show, and we are looking forward to seeing you in 2022!  

It is in turbulent times like this that we are reminded of the power of music.  The Civic Orchestra takes pride in filling auditoriums, churches, synagogues and breweries with people of all walks of life who are eager to share in the experience of a live symphonic music concert.  

We want to take this time to thank you for your support and encouragement through our four seasons of symphonic music making, and staying with us during our virtual year in 2021. Each one of you has played an important role in the success of our organization by attending concerts, supporting orchestra musicians, volunteering at our concerts or through financial donations.  

As we transition back to the world of live engagements, we will be keeping you updated with newsletters that include dates and locations of our 2022 performances, profiles of orchestra musicians, and links to view our past performances online. 

In the truest spirit of the Civic Orchestra community, many are asking how they can help.  What we need at this time are financial resources to enable us to keep our focus on bringing free, quality symphonic music to people throughout the City of Jacksonville and beyond.  If you believe in our mission and want to help the Civic Orchestra thrive throughout these unprecedented times, please consider making a donation by following this link. Support the Orchestra

We are looking forward to making 2022 an exciting year!
