Night At The Oscars will now be held at Ruby Diamond on October 6, 2017 at 8:00pm

Hurricane Irma impacts "Night At The Oscars"

Hurricane Irma impacts on our area disrupted our ability to use Ruby Diamond for the originally scheduled date and forced the TSO to reschedule our "Night At The Oscars" event.

Patrons holding tickets for the original date (September 15, 2017) may use their same ticket for the October 6 performance.

If you have a ticket for the September 15th date and are unable to attend the October 6 performance, please contact our office at 850.224.0461 for assistance.

Thank you for your patronage and patience!

Mission

The Mission of the Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra is to engage, enrich, and inspire people at all stages of life through great music.

The Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra (TSO) is proud to serve the people of our region by providing engaging performances and meaningful educational programs of the highest quality. During the 2018-19 season, the TSO will present a five-concert subscription series, two Young People’s Concerts, a POPS in the Park event at Southwood’s beautiful Central Lake Park in April, and several other musical events. We provide a variety of educational programs for both young and old.  Thanks in large part to Florida State University and its outstanding faculty as well as very talented community musicians, the TSO brings an extremely high-level concert experience to its patrons.

Founded in 1979 by Nicholas Harsanyi, the TSO grew under his leadership until his death in 1987. David Hoose became the Orchestra’s third music director in 1993. After 11 years at the helm of the TSO, Maestro Hoose retired after the 2004-2005 season, and a conductor search carried out during the 2005-2006 season ended successfully with the appointment of Maestra Miriam Burns as the fourth TSO music director. Her debut with the orchestra occurred on October 14, 2006.  In 2012, the TSO embarked on its search for a new artistic leader, which resulted in the appointment of Maestro Darko Butorac as its new Music Director in May of 2013. Darko was the unanimous favorite of patrons, board members, and musicians. Maestro Butorac brings a new dynamic, fresh approach to all aspects of the organization and is a consummate musician.

The Board of Directors, with David Watson serving as Chairperson, oversees the activities of Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra. The Board of the TSO is a group of hard-working volunteers who are active in our community and who are committed to serving its artistic needs.  The Tallahassee Symphony Society was formed in 1993 to support the programs of the TSO through a variety of fundraising activities.The Symphony Society is open to any community member who wishes to participate.  The TSO is a member of the League of American Orchestras and is funded by the generous support of friends, businesses and private foundations. The Symphony receives public support from the Florida Department of State, the Florida Arts Council, and the City of Tallahassee.
