A true American pluralist, Dr. Smart composes and improvises a music that reflects an abiding interest in world music, Americana and jazz, as well as the Western classical tradition. Dr. Smart is currently a Presidential Professor of Music at the University of North Florida.
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.
Intermezzo 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.
Intermezzo 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. All concert attendees should enter through the Laura St entrance.
Accommodations for persons with disabilities are available upon request. Please ask for the Special Needs Library at 630-2665 or email JPLTBSpecialNeeds@coj.net.
