Patriotic Concert Canceled

Tuesday, June 16, 2020

The Chattanooga Music Club regrets to announce that due to the coronavirus, the resulting restrictions on use of the facility, and recommendations on large gatherings for the foreseeable future the club has had to cancel the annual Patriotic Concert scheduled for July 2.

For more than a decade the club has presented this musical tribute in honor and in remembrance of our brave men and women in uniform at the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Auditorium featuring the world-famous Austin Pipe Organ that the club worked so tirelessly to restore.

Plans for this year's concert were focused on the opening of the Medal of Honor Museum and a recognition of the end of WWII 75 years ago. With the tremendous cooperation of all involved the guest speakers and performers have agreed to participate next year, 2021 - the exact date TBA. 

Special thanks to all of those who regularly support this special event and our hope to continue it for years to come. 

We are looking forward to hosting the annual Holiday Spectacular in November, if able, watch for that announcement.
