Florida State University has rescheduled a special performance of The 5 Browns featuring Steinway Art Case pianos from the collection of Tallahassee entrepreneur and museum owner DeVoe Moore.

The 5 Browns — a classical piano ensemble of five siblings — will perform on Moore’s rare Steinways at the first-of-its-kind, free concert at 8 p.m. Thursday, June 1, 2017, at Ruby Diamond Concert Hall. The concert, originally scheduled for Sept. 1, 2016, was postponed due to Hurricane Hermine.

Previous ticket holders must request to transfer their tickets to the new performance by December 16, 2016 by contacting the Fine Arts Ticket Office at 850-644-6500. After the December 16 deadline, any tickets that have not been requested for transfer will become available to the general public on January 24, 2017.
