The Tallahassee Church Music Conference is a biennial, ecumenical event held in Tallahassee in odd numbered years. Its goal is to promote mutual understanding in the practice and theology of music in God's Church. It brings musicians, clergy, and congregants together from across the United States for seminars, discussion forums, and masterclasses devoted to church music. Concerts and worship services also provide the public with a broad and representative spectrum of music and worship.
The Tallahassee Church Music Conference is a sponsored by several different partnering organizations. These include the Dallas-based Church Music Institute, Inc., the Florida State University College of Music, the Florida State University Department of Religion, the Florida American Choral Directors Association, and the Tallahassee Chapter of the American Guild of Organists.
Previous conferences have brought over 1500 conferees, concert attendees, and worshipers together for three days of events. Former faculty members include: Marva Dawn, André Thomas, John Ferguson, Patrick Evans, Michael Corzine, and many others. The host church for the 2013 conference is the First Presbyterian Church of Tallahassee. We are grateful to the church for sharing its wonderful facilities with us.
