With a festival theme of “Bridges,” the Jacksonville Symphony explores the many influences that jazz artists and composers have had on traditional classical composers. The symphony’s composer-in-residence, Courtney Bryan, will have a significant presence in the main stage concert and in the Symphony’s residency activities. 


About SHIFT: A Festival of American Orchestras
SHIFT celebrates the vitality, identity, and extraordinary artistry of orchestras and chamber orchestras in an immersive festival experience in the nation’s capital. The week-long festival is composed of mini-residencies, with each participating orchestra presenting education and community events in venues around Washington, D.C., along with full-orchestra performances in the Kennedy Center Concert Hall.

As the title suggests, SHIFT is about change: the evolution of the art form, the leaving behind of preconceived notions, and the welcoming of new audiences to symphonic music. In keeping with the latter, all tickets for SHIFT’s concerts at the Kennedy Center are priced at a flat $25, and many companion events will be offered free of charge (some with advance reservations required; schedule and details will be announced in the coming months).

SHIFT is co-presented by Washington Performing Arts and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Generous support of the SHIFT Festival is provided through a matching grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation; and by Dr. Gary Mather and Ms. Christina Co Mather; and by Michael F. and Noémi K. Neidorff and The Centene Charitable Foundation. 

SHIFT is supported in part by Betsy and Robert Feinberg and Galena-Yorktown Foundation.

SHIFT is also made possible by Mr. and Mrs. John V. Thomas, and Mr. and Mrs. Harry M. Linowes.

SHIFT is presented in cooperation with the League of American Orchestras.
