ABOUT THE LYCEUM SERIES
The Florida A&M University Lyceum Series has been a part of the FAMU tradition since the University’s early beginnings. Throughout the history of the series, FAMU has enriched campus life and shared with the community the artists, performers and lecturers of the day.
In its early beginning, the series featured Poet Langston Hughes, Singer Marion Anderson, the Count Basie Orchestra and author, activist W.E.B. DuBois and many others who were nationally recognized performers and personalities. During the 2009-2010, FAMU brought the series back to the campus after a brief hiatus. Among the featured performers and artists for the inaugural return were the 3’Mo Divas, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and Wynton Marsalis, the Highway Men and DanceBrazil.
Enhancing FAMU students’ exposure to culture is essential to the selection of performers. The campus is also committed to exposing the Tallahassee community to a variety of cultural experiences through the series.
