About RFAA


The Riverside Fine Arts Association continues its commitment in providing an annual concert series of world-class music that is matchless in its diversity. Presented in historic venues that are unparalleled in beauty, nowhere else in Jacksonville can you experience the spirit of live chamber music, jazz and cross-cultural performances in such intimate surroundings.

Each season, RFAA welcomes a superb mix of classical, jazz and world music from Grammy-award winning instrumentalists and vocal sensations, to unique and world-reknown virtuosi. All tickets for concerts at the Church of the Good Shepherd include admittance to our pre and post concert receptions held in the beautiful and historic Craig Hall. Complimentary wine and hors d’oeurves are available as you have the opportunity to view and perhaps purchase the artwork exhibited from area visual artists scheduled for each concert event.
