Historic Glenwood Celebrates 4th Annual Jazz Festival

Saturday, September 25, 2010

The Glenwood Neighborhood Association will host the fourth annual Glenwood Jazz Festival on Saturday, Oct. 2, from 1–10 p.m.

The festival is free to the public and will feature local Chattanooga jazz artists as well as artists from Atlanta and Knoxville.

Officials said, "The festival is professionally staged with expert lighting and sound. Our neighborhood corporate partner Parkridge Medical Center has provided a safe and secure site with plenty of free parking in the heart of the community just behind the hospital on Ivy and 5th Street, between Derby and Lyerly Streets.

"In addition to the professionally staged musician’s performances there will be several food venders, but picnic baskets, coolers and lawn chairs are welcomed. We have produced this festival as part of our four year strategic plan developed with Community Impact to help raise awareness of our community as a historical 'jewel' in Chattanooga.

"For the fourth year in a row Glenwood will play host to Chattanooga’s only neighborhood produced jazz festival. The musical line-up will feature local favorites such as LaFredrick Thurkill & Co. and Dexter Bell and Friends. In addition we will see a return performance by Kelle Jolly from Knoxville and Tim Crump from Calhoun, Ga.

"Rounding out the line-up will be Latin Jazz artist Sasha from Atlanta. Closing out the festival will be our featured performer, jazz trumpeter, Melvin Miller also from Atlanta."

Glenwood is on of the oldest neighborhoods in Chattanooga. It got its beginning during the Cherokee exile in 1838 when concentration camps for gathering the Cherokees where located in what is now Glenwood. In 1863 Glenwood became an established neighborhood and the Association was formed in 1970.

Glenwood continued to make history by being the first neighborhood on Chattanooga to use the “Ideal Neighborhood Unit Concept”, which later became the standard of neighborhood planning for many American cities.

Glenwood Neighborhood Association thanks its partners: Community Impact of Chattanooga, Memorial Heathcare Systems, Hamilton County, Parkridge Medical Center and other key stakeholders for their help to produce this annual event which contributes to our development of programmatic strategies and activities designed to help revitalize the Glenwood Neighborhood and build the capacity of its residents to influence the future of their community.

The Glenwood Neighborhood Association is a non-profit organization committed to being an ethnically, religiously and economically diverse community ensuring a stable, safe and attractive environment; preserving historic homes and offering services needed by the neighborhood.
