Consider supporting chamber music groups in Jacksonville

When the pandemic began, the performing arts were among the hardest-hit industries in the country. With more people getting out there, there’s no better time to think about supporting chamber music groups across Jacksonville.

Several groups in the area started out simply because they loved performing in more intimate settings, rather than just big symphonies.

One of these is the Florida Chamber Music Project, which opens its 10th season on September 18th at the Beaches Museum Chapel in Jacksonville Beach.

Susan Pardue, a violist and a member of the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra, said she started a chamber music organization because chamber music is different than in a symphony, where there is a conductor and several people playing the same instrument in a large group of musicians. Chamber groups generally range from as few as two to 10 people. She loves both ways.
