AXPONA-Jacksonville-Symphony-Orchestra-Concert.jpgA first-ever audio expo and symphony orchestra collaboration will take place in Jacksonville, Florida, in 2012.

The AXPONA audio show returns to Florida's First Coast, March 9-12 at the Omni Jacksonville Hotel, the first of multiple shows scheduled for 2012 in major metropolitan areas.

Headlining the expo is a live concert by the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra. The March 8-10 concert weekend features Beethoven's Seventh Symphony.

AXPONA is dedicated to preserving superior quality music playback by producing high-end events focused on the world's finest equipment and the media that support it.

AXPONA's Steve Davis is excited to bring the expo back to Jacksonville. "We found that there are more people with a genuine interest and knowledge in high-end home audio in Jacksonville than in cities twice its size. We're also thrilled to include a live orchestral experience in Jacksonville's acoustically superior concert hall," said Davis.

Symphony Executive Director Stacy Ridenour welcomes the collaboration. "It's not often that hundreds of audiophiles have the chance to sample the world's finest equipment and compare it with the very thing it was intended to reproduce, the emotional power of a live symphony orchestra," said Ridenour.

The Omni Jacksonville is directly across from Jacoby Symphony Hall at the Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts, home of the Jacksonville Symphony.

AXPONA is open to the public. Advance tickets are on sale now. Log on to AXPONA.com for tickets and information or call (877) 246-3892 or (386) 256-4993. Jacksonville Symphony tickets are available to AXPONA conference guests for the special convention price $35.

Jacksonville Symphony patrons are offered free admission to AXPONA exhibits by showing their March 8, 9 or 10 Symphony ticket. Admission prices are $15 (one-day); $25 (two-day); $35 (three-day).
