University Musical Associates
For the 2013-2014 concert season we will be offering the University Musical Associates an exceptional series of events including four opportunities to hear the University Symphony Orchestra; three Faculty Chamber Recitals, one titled "Transcriptions," one featuring Duke Ellington's Sacred Suite, and one commemorating the 50th anniversary of Poulenc; two jazz concerts; the Wind Orchestra; Symphonic Band; the Chamber Choir and Chamber Orchestra; the University Singers; and both the fall and spring operas. This Series will be presented from September to April and includes free reserved parking, as well as the opportunity to purchase PRISM, Seasonal Celebration and Rainbow Concert tickets prior to their availability to the general public.
The University Musical Associates, the community patrons' group for the FSU College of Music, are an integral part of the performance life of the College. An organization of active concert attendees, the Associates has grown in the past 25 years to a membership of nearly 400 households.
In addition to their attendance at music events, the Associates are a major force in creating important opportunities for talented students in the College of Music. The organization provides financial assistance for students to travel to competitions and professional conferences, and they also provide financial support for special artists and scholars to visit Tallahassee for public concerts, lectures, and master classes.
