LEE - Restored Images

DVORAK - Symphony No. 8

The season comes to a close with a bright and optimistic program, featuring Dvořák’s idyllic Symphony No. 8. Composed in solitude in the countryside, the symphony seemed to flow spontaneously through Dvořák’s pen, with the composer noting that “melodies seem to pour out of me.” The orchestra will also be joined by composer James Lee, III for his new work, Restored Images. Inspired by the challenges of the year 2020, it evokes the beautiful, restored images of love and respect in humanity.

To enjoy live music in person and provide the safest possible environment for you, your fellow audience members and the musicians, the following safety precautions for in-person concerts will include:

•    Socially distanced seating, allowing for staggered seating between rows and at least two seats between groups seated in the same row. Patrons will not be seated on the aisle to provide distance for those navigating the theatre. It is possible that there are locations in the theatre where the distance between patrons may be less than six feet. Our capacity with socially distanced seating provides for approximately 450 attendees in the theatre that seats more than 1,600.

•    Face coverings are encouraged. In response to new CDC guidance, face coverings are encouraged but not required for vaccinated individuals.

•    The Palafox Lobby will be open for entering the building one hour prior to the concert. The Intendencia Street Lobby will be closed, and the doors will be locked. Seating will be available when the doors open.

•    Security personnel will be present at the entrance. To expedite your entry, consider carrying a small bag or leaving your bag in your locked car. Security will ask you to open your bag so that they may check it. If you have questions about permitted items, please reference the FAQ page at, or call the box office at 850-595-3880.

•    Upon arrival, we encourage you to make your way to your seats. Please do not congregate in the lobby.

•    Concessions will not be available on the premises. Please do not bring outside food or drink.

•    Identify the best aisle for access to your seats. Socially distanced seating enables all patrons to have unobstructed access to an aisle. Please consult an usher about the best aisle to access your seats.
