What People Say about Friday Musicale

Love Friday Musicale. Jeff Tawney and the other staff are wonderful to work with. Prelude Chamber Music Camp has the finale concert there. It’s fantastic.

I held my Roaring 20's Birthday Party at Friday Musicale and found the venue to be an extremely beautiful location convenient to guests from all over Jacksonille, as well as those who came from out of town. Jeff and his staff were easy to work and offered several suggestions for vendors to use for the affair. Special recognition goes to Heather, a member of the Friday Musicale staff who was on-site site during my event. The vendors and family members who helped with the party said she was very nice and pleasant to work with. I wholeheartedly recommend this venue for your next special event!
