IMPORTANT VENUE CHANGE ANNOUNCEMENT

Once Again, Rain Will Not Stop the TSO!
TSO Jazz Concert Moved to The Moon!
SATURDAY, APRIL 25, 2015 AT 8:00PM - DOORS OPEN AT 7:00PM

The national weather service predicts a high likelihood of rain for the time-frame during the Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra Jazz concert, "TSO Jazz!" at Cascades Park. In consideration for your comfort, the event planners and the Tallahassee Symphony organization have elected to move the event indoors. Details of the venue change are as follows:
New Venue: The Moon
1105 E Lafayette St
Tallahassee, FL 32301
Concert Time: The concert will remain at 8:00pm (Doors open at 7:00pm)
Children's Activities event has been cancelled.
Ticket Information: SAVE YOUR APPETITE!
We will still have low-country boil boxes available for $10, provided by Madison Social. These include crawfish, sausage and potatoes and can be shared. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks will be available for purchase at a full bar at the Moon.
Thank you so much!

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!
If you don't have your seat yet, tickets are available and can be purchased by using our links below, or clicking here!

Auditions for the TSO location change

The location for this Saturday's TSO Auditions has been changed to the "Early Music Room HMU229." Audition times and content remain unchanged.

Musicians

Tallahassee is extremely fortunate to house an orchestra of exceptional quality. 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.  We hope to provide you with the opportunity to meet each of our outstanding musicians!  If you are interested in sponsoring a chair through the Sustain the Stage initiative, please call our office at 850.224.0461 for more information.

Auditions for the TSO are held over the summer. Check back for information about 2020 auditions. Please visit the 2019 TSO Audition Page for examples of previous audition excerpts.
