Enjoy an Intimate Fine Arts Concert

Fall is in the air, and with the change in season, there is much to do in Jacksonville, Florida.  Many newcomers are surprised to learn that we don’t spend all our time at the beach in the Sunshine State, and that we have  many varied cultural events in our vibrant city.

Today, I would like to focus on two of my favorite chamber music/recital series: the Riverside Fine Arts Series and the Beaches Fine Arts Series.

The Riverside Fine Arts Series opens its Concert Series Friday, October 12th, at 8:00 with Julian Lage, guitarist.  November events include the Bohemian Quartet, November 16th, and the Empire Brass, November 29th.  Enjoy world-class music in an intimate atmosphere at the Church of the Good Shepherd  in historic Riverside.  Tickets are $25 with season discounts available.

The Riverside Fine Arts Organ Series opens this Thursday, October 11th, at 7:30 p.m. with Felix Hell performing with the Jacksonville Symphony in Jacoby Hall.

In 1972, the Beaches Fine Arts Series began offering world class music and dance in a series of 8 free programs annually.  Most concerts are held at the stunning St. Paul’s-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Jacksonville Beach, FL.  Upcoming performances include the American Boy Choir,  Sunday November 21st at 4:30 and the American Brass Quintet,  Friday November 9th at 7:30 p.m.

There’s even a reception after each of the Riverside Fine Arts Series and the Beaches Fine Arts Series performances, where you can meet and greet the performers, enjoy visual art work from regional artists, and perhaps pick up an autographed CD!
