Tallahassee Music Week is a ten-day celebration of music diversity and the Capital City’s rich musical talent. From a virtuoso string quartet in a grocery store, to a jazz legend performing at Ruby Diamond, to 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!”

“Tallahassee Music Week is a new and exciting contributor to making our community a place where young people want to live and work,” said Joy Watkins, President & CEO of the Community Foundation, which manages one of TMW’s major sponsors, the Knight Foundation Fund. “In addition, the event brings people from diverse social and economic backgrounds together which Knight believes is also a component of successful cities.”

After Tallahassee Music Week’s kick-off on Friday, April 3 at Railroad Square, the series of performances will continue over the next several days in various locations throughout Tallahassee – in grocery stores, community centers, bus terminals, coffee shops, nightclubs, and restaurants. On April 11th and 12th, Tallahassee Music Week then passes the baton to the Word of South Festival, an independent event which marks TMW’s grand finale.

TMW is a Knight Creative Communities Institute (KCCI) project, which has been made possible by the generous support of its community sponsors, which include its Gold Sponsors: the Tallahassee Democrat, the Knight Foundation, and Century Link; its Silver Sponsors: Capital City Bank, Salter Mitchell, NAI TALCOR, and Hartsfield Construction; and its Bronze Sponsors: Levings & Associates, Low Flying Planes, and Harvest Printing.
