Chattanooga State Announces Virtual Fine Arts Events

Tuesday, October 13, 2020 - by Betty Proctor, Chattanooga State

Chattanooga State’s Fine Arts Department has launched a fall calendar of events offered virtually and free of charge. With a little creative fine-tuning, all theatrical and musical performances will be presented in live-stream or pre-recorded formats. 

The Giver, a play by Eric Coble based on the book by Lois Lowry, will be presented “live” Oct. 22, 24, 29, 30 and 31 beginning at 7:30 p.m. This is a story about the human condition and the importance of memory. The play centers around Jonas, who thinks his world is perfect, but after being selected for a special job in his community, he quickly learns how much was missing from his life. This “live” performance, produced by special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing Company, Inc., will be presented in the parking lot of the Humanities building on Chattanooga State’s main campus, and the audio will utilize a closed FM transmitter, so the audience can enjoy the play from the comfort of their vehicle. Decide which day to attend, then visit www.chattanoogastate.edu/theatre to register. 

Sit back and enjoy a European Tour at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 26, as Chattanooga State’s Symphonic Band, directed by Nicholas Hartline, takes the audience on a musical journey through Spain, Italy, Hungary and France, ending with a final stop back home in America. The concert will feature flute soloists Amalia Hartline and Cindy Solfest-Wallis. View this concert at https://youtu.be/aS0XcTbBF2Q

We Must Love

I feel it too. It is easy to hate. Maybe we could try harder to love. Hate seeps into our bones, rules our integrity, and convinces us to forsake those we love. Hate is toxic.
