Arts at Erlanger invites patients, family members, staff and visitors to performances by Antoine Williamson and Tee Bumpass, Agene Parsons and Evelyn Madewell and JJ & The Celebration Band.
The Jazz sounds of Antoine Williamson’s trumpet and Tee Bumpass’ key board will fill the Medical Mall this Tuesday. Beginning at noon, the duo will play a selection of Jazz Christmas music. Mr. Williamson has been traveling all over the southeast fusing jazz, reggae, soul funk, salsa and calypso for audiences of all ages over the past 20 years. Mr. Bumpass has been performing around Chattanooga with his band, The Tee Bumpass band, for years. He is known for his unique style infusing his own stamp with well-known songs.
On Dec. 18, Ms. Parsons will perform with her hammered dulcimer and Ms. Madewell with her fiddle near the main information desk at the Baroness Hospital. The duo will play a selection of Christmas music and will begin performing at noon.
JJ and The Celebration Band will perform on Dec. 19 at noon in the Medical Mall. Jim Jordan’s band includes a pianist, clarinet, singer and bass player. The combination band will play a selection of Christmas music. They have performed all over the United States, and were part of the opening events at the new Kennedy Outpatient Center last year.
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," officials said.
