Artist Series of Tallahassee Awarded by South Arts
Atlanta-based South Arts has awarded a Regional Touring grant to the Artist Series of Tallahassee. The grant will support the January 2017 Artist-in-Residence music outreach program led by the Fandango Quartet.
South Arts is a regional arts organization working in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts to support programming for selected nonprofit arts organizations.
The Fandango Quartet (guitar, flute. violin and cello) was chosen to help the Artist Series redefine the classical music experience, forge a new identity for chamber music, and reach the broadest audience possible, regardless of means and circumstances.
Program initiatives include six music outreach workshops in primary and secondary schools in Leon, Wakulla and Gadsden counties; a workshop held in Allegro Senior Living facility; a master class for young musicians, and a public concert in Opperman Music Hall. An estimated 2,100 people will be served by the 2017 residency.
The Artist Series of Tallahassee is a nonprofit arts organization founded in 1995 to promote and encourage an appreciation of classical chamber music in North Florida while developing a broad-based, sustainable audience.
