Arts At Erlanger Brings Performing Arts To Erlanger Medical Mall

Monday, February 11, 2019
Arts at Erlanger invites patients, family members, staff and visitors to performances by Andy Tallent on Feb. 13 in the Erlanger Medical Mall, and Agene Parsons on Feb. 27 in the Erlanger Baroness breezeway. Both performances begin at noon. 
 
Mr. Tallent has spent nearly his entire life at the piano. "Throughout the past 40 years, he has developed his unique touch allowing him to be at home creating peaceful piano compositions of modern instrumental pieces," organizers said. He is a classically trained pianist who has also developed roots in jazz, gospel and modern worship. 
 
Ms.
Parsons will perform with her hammered dulcimer, which she has been playing since she retired from her nursing career in 1998. She has performed as a solo entertainer with local bands in the Chattanooga area, as well as playing for weddings, receptions and other private events. She has taught workshops at festivals, clubs and schools in several states. In 2007, Ms. Parsons won the Hammered Dulcimer Competition in Smithville, Tn. 
 
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.
