One of the top orchestras in the state, the JSS is on stage for five concerts each year. Auditioned performers work with featured guest performers, including members of the St. Louis Symphony. Programs include classical, holiday, and pop offerings.
The goals of the JACKSONVILLE SYMPHONY SOCIETY are: "To provide symphonic and choral music for the cultural enhancement and education of the general public, to provide opportunities for the local musicians to improve their skills and to promote the appreciation of symphonic and choral music."
Most performances are held at Rammelkamp Chapel on the campus of Illinois College at 7:30 PM on select Saturday evenings. See the Jacksonville Symphony Society for a full schedule.
