Fridays At Miller Plaza To Feature Local Musicians Through Oct. 31

Monday, August 25, 2014

Local musicians will perform each Friday at lunchtime at Miller Plaza in the Waterhouse Pavilion. Programming these events is Jonathan Susman, former marketing director for Chattanooga Presents, with support coming from River City Company. 

The idea behind these concerts is to create an atmosphere for people to enjoy their lunch in the shaded pavilion while listening to some great, local singer/songwriters.  

"We are always looking for ways to activate Miller Plaza," states Paige Southard, program manager for River City Company. "Music is a great animation tool, and we hope people will enjoy all the local musicians who are coming out to perform.” 

Artists to perform include Butch Ross on Friday, and Caleb Warren, Christie Burns, Jordan Hallquist and others will perform in subsequent weeks. The full schedule for these concerts is below.
