For the second year “A Notable Evening… Music to stop the savage beast of child abuse” will be held at the Tivoli Theater.

The Greater Chattanooga Exchange Club Foundation will hold its fundraiser on Tuesday, Nov. 20, at 7 p.m.

All proceeds from the event go to support the child abuse prevention efforts of the foundation.

Officials said, "This year’s show offers something for everyone. Some of the finest talent in the local area will be showcased."

Jay Craven and the Chattanooga Clarinet Choir will open the evening, featuring classical standards and music written especially for clarinet choirs. Mr. Craven, retired principal clarinetist for the Chattanooga Symphony Orchestra and still a popular performer himself, will direct the choir in renditions ranging from Vivaldi’s Concerto in Eb Major to Scott Joplin’s “Swipesy Cakewalk.” Sure to be a crowd-pleaser will be the choir’s closer, “When the Saints go Marchin’ In.”

A newcomer to the Chattanooga music scene, mezzo-soprano Delores Beery-Norwood, brings 15 years of performing on stages all across Europe to the Tivoli stage. Together with accompanist, Jim Torrance, she will present a program of songs by composers such as Jerome Kern, Frank Loesser and Steven Sondheim. Ms. Beery-Norwood, a winner of the coveted Grand Prize from the Austrian Ministry of Arts and a graduate of the prestigious Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria has starred in opera, musical and sacred performances from Kansas City to Vienna and from Berlin to Paris.

Rounding out the evening’s performance will be the ever-popular local band, “In Cahoots.” “In Cahoots” is a nine-year veteran of the Southern Belle riverboat. With a touch of bluegrass, a little bit of country swing, a dose of cowboy and a whole lot of fun, this group will have you tapping your toes and nodding your head – all the while laughing at the humorous anecdotes interlaced with the music.

Preceding the concert, at 6 p.m., will be a silent auction in the lobby of the theater. This year’s auction features a Pat Summitt-autographed basketball and a beautiful wood carving from local artist Butch Preisel.

Tickets are $12 at the door, with open seating. All proceeds benefit child abuse prevention efforts in the local area. Several of the agencies supported by this effort will be hand to answer questions and provide information on what is being done in Hamilton County to fight this problem.

For more information, call 894-0445.

The story has been around for a while, long enough for the fact-checking Snopes.com to classify it as a “legend,” which means “great story but lacks validity,” so as we hope Tennessee’s football team can somehow beat 19 th -ranked Missouri in a rough-and-tumble game at Neyland Stadium tonight, allow me to share this because it is delightful just the same. The following is what ... (click for more)
