“We are excited to bring The Gainesville Orchestra back to the nation’s oldest city. This talented group of musicians performed a beautiful holiday pops concert for EMMA Concert Association in December 2021,” said Joanne Everett, President of EMMA Board of Directors.
Tickets are $35 per guest and include free parking at the St. Johns County Council on Aging, with complimentary shuttle to and from the venue. Parking is not available on site at Lewis Auditorium at Flagler College.
This is the final concert of EMMA’s 43rd season. The organization is currently working on the 2022-2023 performance lineup, which will be announced soon. Started by a small group of music lovers in April 1979, the organization was named after a famous Spanish cellist, Emil Maestre, who retired to St. Augustine. EMMA is a nonprofit all-volunteer organization with the mission to produce quality music and dance performances at modest ticket prices. In 1989, the EMMA Board of Directors formed the EMMA Guild. The board and the Guild work hand-in-hand to produce one successful concert after another. Since 1993, Lewis Auditorium at Flagler College has been the home for EMMA’s concerts.
