Tallahassee Florida Music
It's no secret that Tallahassee is welcoming a new generation of young adults with the new wave of college students. In recent years, the amphitheater has been a centralized park and the shopping center has become a music scene. Florida State University's venues have always been the venues for national events, but not always in the same way.
While Tallahassee certainly has a reputation for full seats, with inmates expecting to hear the tunes on the radio, the city has also picked up those whose names are not yet in the light but who are on the path to glory. Many of these people had musical talents, many created rhythms in dormitories, some studied the progress of music history, and some brave, talented and proactive souls went to local bars and clubs to share their talents.
First Joy took her service to Tallahassee and traveled together on a missionary journey for a year or two. The youth choir was able to travel to share the love of God with the poor and needy.
In 1959, the Marching Redcoats were invited to participate as the official band of the State of Florida. Special performances in 1997 and this year included the 1990 Festival of Winds, which took place on the campus of the University of South Florida in Tampa. Leon High School Symphonic Band performed at the prestigious All-South Music Institute, held annually on the campus of the University of Southern Mississippi. In the spring of 2006, the symphony band was invited to the Tallahassee City Hall for the first time in its history.
The band participated every year in the National Brass Music Festival, which Adams attended in Leon and received a superior rating every year. In 2004, the band received excellent ratings at the festival they attended, and in 2005, they received excellent ratings at both Tallahassee City Hall and the Festival of Winds.
This tradition of excellence continued when the Concert Band first appeared at the festival in 1995.
The magic of chamber music will continue this year, when Music for Food Tallahassee presents the Purple Martin String Quartet with quartets by Philip Glass and Robert Schumann. The concert is part of a musicians-led initiative to combat hunger in the community. In addition to raising funds directly to local food banks, food banks and other food service providers, the members of the Purple Martin String Quartet are local professional musicians from our community and will perform at the festival for the first time.
The 6,500-seat amphitheater is protected from the elements and has already been booked for the Taste of Chaos tour with Dashboard Confessional. The concert will be open to the public on Sunday, July 21, at 4 pm and from 4.30 pm to 7 pm.
Cascades Park has hosted both local and national acts, and the audience has enjoyed many great concerts in its first year of entertainment. The pavilion has hosted numerous "Take-Back Sunday" events throughout the year, including the annual Tallahassee Music Festival and Take Back Sunday, as well as a variety of other events. On Sunday, July 21, a concert will be held in the amphitheatre of the Cascade Park, which will be the focus of the pavilion for the first time in its history.
Lead singer Tracy Horenbein delivers insightful lyrics and carries an unbridled sense of pride for Tallahassee in the band's roster. Ball rejuvenated the jazz band, which received the highest rating of the 1988 State Festival, and the brass and symphony bands continue the history of excellence with superior ratings at each festival entered. In addition, over one hundred percent of the students in the bands attend the Florida Bandmasters Solo Ensemble Festival and return late to the festival. These students have represented Leon High School in numerous bands of honor, including the Florida State Bandmaster's Award, the National Honor Band Award and numerous state awards.
