The Concert on the Green is the largest event of its kind in Clay County. The annual event is located on the grounds of St. Johns Country Day School in Orange Park, FL.
Concert on the Green’s principal purpose is to provide music and visual art scholarship opportunities to Clay County students by organizing a festival event for Clay County families and visitors which combines a live symphony orchestra with a natural, beautiful outdoor family setting.
Concert on the Green Young Artist Concerto Competition is an annual event. Auditions occur in April and up to two concerto winners may be chosen by a panel of judges. The talented students chosen win monetary scholarships and are granted the opportunity to perform as soloists with the Jacksonville Symphony! An honor few professional musicians have in a lifetime!
Concert on the Green holds a Poster Art Competition each year as well. In the last 30 years, Concert on the Green has awarded over $320,000 in scholarships and grants to Clay County students and schools.
One event in Clay County has been instrumental in keeping the arts alive, encouraging our school age children to take up the arts, and in showing the entire County what a joy the arts can be. One event has celebrated the incredible gifts to us made by our veterans, gifts which have made us what we are today. Concert on the Green is that event.
