The Tivoli Theatre Foundation announces the first Elliott Davis Concert Series. The 2020 Elliott Davis Concert Series kicks off Wednesday at the Tivoli Theatre with Drew and Ellie Holcomb.

Additional national touring artists joining the series will be announced soon. 

“Through a generous partnership with Elliott Davis we will add up to six shows to our lineup in 2020 starting with Drew and Ellie Holcomb at the Tivoli in February and Chicago at the Memorial in May," said Nick Wilkinson, executive director of the Tivoli Theatre Foundation. "We are thrilled at the opportunity to grow the quality of entertainment in Chattanooga. Elliott Davis has been a strong supporter of the arts across our community and, with this partnership, they continue to broaden the cultural experiences available to Chattanoogans right here in our hometown.”

A three-year commitment from Elliott Davis ensures the series will continue through 2022.

"Elliott Davis is dedicated to supporting the performing arts in Chattanooga and the Tivoli Theatre Foundation is a key contributor to the entertainment scene in our community and the remarkable quality of life that our employees and clients enjoy here,” said Rick Davis, CEO of Elliott Davis. “We believe that good business is about more than just doing business in Chattanooga; it’s about supporting the organizations who make this community a great place to live, work and play.”

“This level and duration of community commitment gives the Tivoli Theatre Foundation the resources to secure premium acts and bring them to our stages,” Mr. Wilkinson said. “Acts of this level bring out locals and attract tourism to our city. It’s a success for the whole community.”
