Classical Mix Tape - Symphony in 60


Courtney Lewis Conductor

Start off the Symphony in 60 Series by celebrating Jacksonville’s Pride Month with a concert featuring classical ‘hits’ hand-selected by Music Director Courtney Lewis. Enjoy a toast during the pre-concert cocktail hour, then revel in driving dance rhythms from John Adams’ Nixon in China, Richard Wagner’s wild Tannhäuser Bacchanale and three fiery Latin dances from Manuel de Falla’s ballet, The Three-Cornered Hat
