Lovers of coffee and cocktails can also enjoy a world-class concert with the Jacksonville Symphony as the orchestra takes the audience on a journey through the music of one of history’s most epic composers: Ludwig van Beethoven. This concert is on both the PNC Bank Symphony in 60 Happy Hour Series and the Raymond James Coffee Series.

Classical music titan Ludwig van Beethoven wrote nine epic symphonies and five glorious piano concertos. Symphony Associate Conductor Gonzalo Farias takes you through a series of highlights from several of these works, each revealing a different face of Beethoven and his brilliance.

  • Coffee Concert: Friday, November 19 at 11 a.m. Complimentary coffee is served from 10-11 a.m.

These concerts will feature music from five of Beethoven’s most beloved works:

  • Symphony No. 6, “Pastoral”
  • Piano Concerto No. 5, “Emperor”
