The FSU College of Music is pleased to announce participation in the first-ever Tallahassee Music Week festival, April 3–12, 2015. A ten-day celebration of music diversity and the rich musical talent of our capital city, the inaugural Music Week kick-off takes place at Railroad Square on Friday, April 3rd, and will feature more than a dozen performances.

In an effort to encompass the true depth and breadth of the Tallahassee musical culture, the Music Week is not limited to certain locations: from a virtuoso string quartet in a grocery store, to a jazz legend performing at Ruby Diamond, or a folk band at a downtown park, Tallahassee Music Week will feature performances by artists at various locations throughout the Tallahassee area. Most of the events are free and open to the public.

“We’re proud to offer more than 100 musical performances at nearly 50 locations throughout Tallahassee,” said Tallahassee Music Week President, Rick Minor. “Our goal is to promote the rich musical talent within our community, increase public appreciation for music of all forms, and showcase Tallahassee’s arts and culture to strengthen the local economy – all while listening to some great music!”

The following College of Music ensemble performances are included in Music Week, as well as numerous additional performances by College of Music students and faculty:
