Historic Joan and Irwin Jacobs Music Center, home of the San Diego Symphony, is regarded as one of the finest classical music venues on the West Coast.

Originally built in 1929 as a premiere movie house (known then as The Fox Theater), this lush, French Rococo/ Spanish Colonial blend-style hall was conferred to the Symphony in 1984. The beauty and majesty of this historic hall has added to the stature and artistic growth of San Diego Symphony.

San Diego Symphony performed its first concert on December 6, 1910. In the 97 years since its inception, San Diego Symphony has become one of the leading orchestras in the United States. It is committed to providing musical experiences of superior quality for the greater San Diego community and beyond. Through a rich mixture of innovative and educational programming designed to appeal to all ages and cultures, the Symphony makes music an integral part of the cultural and intellectual fabric of the San Diego region, valued by and relevant to all its residents.

Copley Symphony Hall is a multi-functional facility that can host concerts, comedy shows, corporate & civic events, film screenings and more. It is equipped with state-of-the-art digital sound and lighting technology, and normally seats up to 2235, with possible front row expansions accommodating 39 more. Embedded inside the performance chamber is a full-sized Robert Morton pneumatic pipe organ and two carbon-arc film projectors.
