UTC Percussion Ensemble

The UTC Music Department will present Catch the Groove, directed by Monte Coulter, on Monday, April 14, at 7:30 p.m. This traditional spring concert will take place at the UTC Fine Arts Center, Roland Hayes Concert Hall, 752 Vine St. and will consist of some works which are new to the area and others which are more established in the percussion ensemble idiom. This one-night-only program is free, and the public is invited.

New to the stage in Chattanooga are two movements from Patrick Long’s “Winter Nocturnes,” as just a way to say “good-bye and good riddance” to such a cold winter season! More standard works that percussion audiences have grown to love are Jesse Ayer’s “Yobel,” a stirring entrada for mallet instruments, meant to depict the silver trumpet that announces the Year of Jubilee in the Jewish calendar. Performers include: Dylan Bailey, Mack DeFriese, Erik Gehrke, Eaven Holder, Michael Pagan, Cameron Perkins, Ian McNeese, Hayden Smith, and Kyle Windham. 

Dr. Monte Coulter is the director of percussion studies at UTC. He is currently principal percussionist and assistant timpanist of the Chattanooga Symphony Orchestra, and has performed as a principal player in three of the four largest professional orchestras in Tennessee, as well as with touring companies of Man of La Mancha (with Robert Goulet), Rich Little, The Electric Light Orchestra, The Moody Blues, Bernadette Peters, Shari Lewis, Al Jarreau, Art Garfunkel, Randy Newman, and others. Dr. Coulter is an artist and clinician with Kori Marimbas and Xylophones.
