About our guest artist: Charlotte

Charlotte Mabrey arrived in Jacksonville, FL after she received her Bachelor of Music and Master of Music from the University of Illinois in 1977. What was supposed to be a one year position as the Principal percussionist with the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra (JSO) turned into a 27 year career. Over the years, the JSO experienced remarkable growth as a cultural beacon in Jacksonville. The city embraced the classical offerings and set about to fund a world class ensemble. This growth included additional full time musicians, construction of a world class performance hall and an extended season. The JSO has presented some of the world’s most sought after soloists, including Yo-yo Ma, Roberta Peters, Renee Fleming and Pink Martini.

While performing with the JSO, Mabrey was hired as the professor of percussion at the University of North Florida (UNF) in Jacksonville in 1983. Her unique position of both active performer and educator allowed Mabrey to grow and learn throughout her years with the JSO and UNF. It brought a certain relevance to her percussion studio, one that constantly brought together the world of playing and education.
