About Jacobs Music Center

THE JOAN AND IRWIN JACOBS MUSIC CENTER

The Joan and Irwin Jacobs Music Center is the home of the San Diego Symphony. Currently closed for a major renovation project, it will be upon re-opening (Fall 2023) a multi-functional facility that can host concerts, comedy shows, corporate & civic events, film screenings and more inside its performance chamber, known as Copley Symphony Hall. It will be equipped with state-of-the-art digital sound and lighting technology, and will seat up to 1750 in the audience chamber. Embedded inside the performance chamber is a full-sized Robert Morton pneumatic pipe organ.

The Jacobs Music Center's Copley Symphony Hall began life as The Fox Theatre movie palace in 1929, part of the nationwide Fox theaters chain. It became the property of the San Diego Symphony in 1984 and was extensively renovated at that time. A new and extensive renovation project is under way to make the hall a premier venue for classical and pops music presentations. Great care is being taken to preserve much of the original look of the lobbies and performance chamber, however.

As the renovation approaches completion (expected Fall 2023), more details will be available about amenities and activatable spaces at the Jacobs Music Center.
