About the Joan and Irwin Jacobs Music Center

The Joan and Irwin Jacobs Music Center is the home of the San Diego Symphony. It is 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.

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. Significant upgrades to the stage and backstage facilities have occurred since then, including the recent completion of Grosvenor Family Musician Center. Great care has been taken to preserve much of the original look of the lobbies and performance chamber, however.
