Next ARIAS Bus is January 5th

Greetings Friends and Members of ARIAS,

The ARIAS bus from Harris Teeter last Saturday night was greatly appreciated by our 13 riders due to the torrential downpour we experienced last weekend. We were VERY happy to be dropped off under the canopy of the Jacksonville Performing Arts Center to see either the Messiah or the Nutcracker. We were even more happy to find that our driver James, from Blue Sky of Amelia Transportation, had been able to pull right up under the covered awning upon our departure, so umbrellas were not needed. I think we were all very relieved to have a professional at the wheel under the wet and windy weather conditions.

Our next bus from Amelia Island is offered on Friday January 5th, to hear the fabulous Conrad Tao play Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and Rachmaninoff’s FourthPiano Concerto. Rounding out this exciting program are Strumfrom Jessie Montgomery and Carl Nielsen’s dramatic “Inextinguishable Symphony.

All the details you need for making a reservation are on our website at

Be certain to tell us the date that you wish to ride, in the ‘Note’ section at the bottom of the reservation form. In addition to purchasing your seat on the bus, you will also need your event ticket from Jacksonville Symphony. If you don’t already have your ticket for the performance you plan to attend, our website has convenient links for you to use.
