Orchestras, Symphonies, & Operas

Florida is great place to experience classical music at its finest. Most of the major cities in Florida – including Miami, St. Petersburg, Orlando, Tampa, and Jacksonville – have at least one orchestra or opera company. These companies put on several performances a year featuring classical music from various time periods as well as modern symphonic pieces.
