Arts at Erlanger invites patients, family members, staff and visitors to performances by Chattanooga School for the Arts and Sciences (CSAS) High School Chorus on Dec. 5, and Chattanooga Symphony and Orchestra Wind Quintet on Dec. 6, in the Erlanger Medical Mall.
CSAS High School Chorus will begin performing at noon in the Erlanger Medical Mall on Dec. 5. The student choir will perform a selection of holiday music. Director Aisha Allen and the CSAS singers have performed at the Erlanger Medical Mall, City Hall and countless other venues in the area.
6, the Chattanooga Symphony and Orchestra Wind Quintet will fill the Medical Mall with music beginning at 11:30 a.m. The quintet is composed of principal members of the orchestra; Kristen Holritz (flute), Robert Burks (oboe), Robert West (clarinet), Eric Anderson (bassoon), Gordon James (French horn). A long-standing entity of the CSO, their years of service range from five to thirty-seven years. The CSO quintets perform in local schools and a variety of community locations including libraries, hospitals, public parks, senior centers, and Chattanooga businesses. As some of the finest musicians in the area, the quintet members teach at several regional universities and teach lessons to numerous music students across the county.
The performances are hosted by the Arts at Erlanger committee, a volunteer organization that facilitates art-based therapy throughout the health system. The goal of the Arts at Erlanger committee is to provide reprieve for hospital patients and visitors who may draw comfort from a variety of art forms including visual art, music and dance.
