Friday, June 1, 2018

The Scenic City Chorale will perform a Patriotic and Broadway Music Concert on Sunday, June 10 at 3 p.m. at the Jewish Cultural Center, 5461 North Terrace Road. There is no cost to attend. 

The concert will include such songs as You’re A Grand Old Flag in honor of the upcoming Flag Day, June 14. Additional patriotic songs include This Land Is Your Land, America, God Bless America and Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor as well as others.  Broadway songs will include Love is a Many-Splendored Thing, a Fiddler on the Roof medley, and other favorites.

The Scenic City Chorale is a community chorus of approximately 70 adults from diverse geographic, economic and social backgrounds.  Almost all of its members are retired senior citizens from throughout the Tennessee Valley who gather for weekly rehearsals from September through May and present winter and spring concerts along with performances for nursing homes and other groups.  The Chorale’s mission is to be a community resource that serves its members while helping to grow an audience, which enjoys beautiful secular and religious music.

Organized in 1965 under the auspices of Senior Neighbors of Chattanooga, the chorale has continued independently since 2013.  The Music Director is Ron Starnes. The Associate Director is Nancy Teague and the Chorale’s Manager/Librarian is Bobbie Howell. 

The Jewish Cultural Center, funded by the Jewish Federation of Greater Chattanooga, offers programs, classes and exhibits, social services and a preschool—all rooted in Jewish values.  The facility enables the Jewish community to raise its visibility, foster relationships, and strengthen its identity in the Chattanooga area.   Located at 5461 North Terrace, the Center and its programs are open to everyone regardless of religious affiliation.
