Music @ Main: Free Music Programs at the Main Library

Jacksonville Public Library's Main Library proudly contributes to our community's cultural life by offering a wide variety of classical music programming.  All of the performers freely donate their time and talents for the opportunity to perform in the series, and we have been fortunate to present programs in partnership with area schools, colleges and universities, with the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra, and with Friday Musicale, Jacksonville's oldest community music society.

Music @ Main concerts have included world premieres of more than a dozen newly-composed works in a variety of vocal, choral, and instrumental styles. Printed program guides accompany each performance, providing information about the compositions and the performers, as well as selective listings of related reading and listening materials available from the Library's superlative collection of music resources.

Music @ Main concerts are open to the general public and reservations are not required. Unless otherwise noted, these free concerts are presented in the Main Library's Hicks Auditorium, located on the Conference Level of the Library near the Main Street entrances.

Library customers who use the public garage at the corner of Duval Street and Main Street may take their garage tickets to our ground-floor Popular Services Desk to get validation for free parking weekday evenings when entering after 5 p.m. and on weekends. Free on-street parking is also available on weekends and evenings after 6 p.m..
