The Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra is voicing concern over the issue, saying the proposed fees for its users would end up hurting attendance or the symphonys bottom line. The bill being heard by City Council committees this week proposes bumping fees to $2.50 per ticket for events at The Times-Union Center for Performing Arts, Veterans Memorial Arena and the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville. It currently is $1 for those at the performing arts center and arena and 50 cents at the baseball facility. Jacksonville Jaguars games at EverBank Field would continue to bring in $3.25 per ticket, while events at the under-construction amphitheater and stadium for non-games would be $2.50. It would be the first time in nearly 20 years the fees have been adjusted and its expected to generate close to $1.4 million more in fiscal 2017-18 to maintain those facilities. Robert Massey, president and CEO of the Jacksonville Symphony Association, appeared before the first committee Monday to relay concerns outlined in a letter he sent council members over the weekend. The symphony, he told the Neighborhoods, Community Investments and Services Committee, pays the city about $90,000 a year in rent, which doesnt include security or other direct costs. That also includes the organization eating the $1 ticket charge already imposed on customers. Yet, after coming to terms with the city over the summer on a new lease that lowered costs, the symphony is poised to have its first budget surplus that would allow it to expand the season by three weeks next year. Massey said if the increase goes into effect and the symphony continues to cover the costs, the $90,000 jumps to about $150,000, eliminating the surplus. The other option would be to pass it on to customers, but marketing shows that would decrease attendance. Massey said the symphony brings about 4,000 people Downtown for each performance. Mike Weinstein, Mayor Lenny Currys chief financial officer, said the renegotiated lease already provided several favorable terms to help the symphony and the ticket surcharge was a user fee adjustment that was long overdue.
