Tivoli And Memorial Celebrate Students' Success

Friday, May 9, 2014

After a busy spring season hosting weekend-long dance and talent competitions for young people here and traveling in from around the region, Chattanooga's Tivoli Theatre and Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Auditorium launched into 2014 graduation season.

When Tivoli Theatre and Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Auditorium are not busy hosting a sold-out concert like Don Williams or Heart Strings for Hope with Sheryl Crow or a full-scale Broadway production like Beauty and the Beast, they're hosting full seasons of "school shows," talent and dance competitions, and high school and college graduations. See the full 2014 graduation schedule below.

Each year: 

Tivoli and Memorial host over 30,000 students from Hamilton County and surrounding counties for school shows like "Flamenco Ballet" and the "Super Scientific Circus." Many of these students would never otherwise step foot in Chattanooga's premier performance venues Tivoli Theatre and Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Auditorium. 

Tivoli and Memorial host a full spring season of regional and national talent and dance competitions. This spring the Tivoli and Memorial hosted 14 such events. Young people and their families flood the venues for two and three day competitions, sleeping in downtown hotels, eating at downtown restaurants, and visiting the Tennessee Aquarium and Hunter Museum in their limited free time, and spending their dollars in our local economy. 

Tivoli and Memorial host 20 local high school and college graduations. This weekend begins the 2014 graduation season.

Roy Exum: My Garden In December

As the fallen leaves confirm today is the first of December, my monthly walk in life’s garden is more foggy than fun.

So here are some things that deserve a helping of both: A PIECE OF CANDY to the amazingly few who can spy a nest of mistletoe high in area ... (click for more)
