‘At the Ballet II’ Returns to the Jacksonville Symphony with more dancers


“At the Ballet II” will unite music and dance in a Jacksonville Symphony Coffee Series event this week.

Graceful dancers from The Florida Ballet return to the Jacksonville Symphony, now joined by the Jacksonville Dance Theatre, for a breathtaking, harmonious fusion of dance and symphonic art featuring Maurice Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence.

Seasoned listeners and those new to symphonic music will be equally entertained by the Symphony in 60 Series. Enjoy a casual and fun cocktail hour before the 60-minute concert, introductions to each musical piece by the conductor and a chance to make new friends.

The main performance will be at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, May 23, at the Jacksonville Symphony, 300 Water Street, Jacksonville. There will also be a matinee performance at 11:30 a.m. Friday, May 24, with coffee and cookies beforehand.

Tickets for this performance are currently on sale to the public. Go to jaxsymphony.org.
