Welcome to the online home of the Artist Series! We are a community-based nonprofit charity whose goal is to increase the depth, diversity and profile of Classical music audiences in Tallahassee and greater North Florida. The Artist Series provides programs supporting music outreach to underserved populations, active music performance, and public concerts featuring world-class chamber music ensembles and solo instrumentalists.

For our 20th season, we have hand-picked five world-class performers that will appeal to a broad range of audiences. Our ticket prices are affordable, and reflect the Artist Series’ commitment to share the experience with as many people as possible. All concerts will take place in beautiful Opperman Music Hall on the FSU campus, which gives patrons a chance to see the performers up close and in a venue with wonderful acoustics.

Detailed information about each artist is available on the Purchase Tickets page.

The Artist Series presents the Dorian Wind Quintet in concert Sunday, October 12 at 4 p.m. in Opperman Music Hall.

“One of chamber music’s most sparkling and eloquent ensembles” (Time Magazine), the Dorian Wind Quintet is recognized worldwide by professional musicians and audiences for its uniquely polished and passionate performances. Every member of the Dorian is a virtuoso in his or her own right, as well as a dedicated chamber player.

The Dorian Wind Quintet has performed repertoire ranging from Baroque to Pulitzer Prize-winning commissions in the world’s most renowned concert halls. The Quintet has literally been around the world — concertizing in 49 of the 50 United States and Canada, touring Europe 18 times, and playing throughout the Middle East, India, Africa and Asia. The Dorian made history as the first wind quintet to appear at Carnegie Hall.
