Performing Arts League Showcase Features Young Performers Jan. 15-16

Saturday, January 9, 2021

The Performing Arts League, in partnership with UTC’s Department of Performing Arts, presents A Video Showcase of Young Performers: Celebrating Chattanooga’s Young Talent in the Performing Arts on Friday and Saturday from 3:30-9 p.m. for both days.

Featuring a selection of Chattanooga’s youth ensembles in a variety of performances of dance, theater and music, the Video Showcase will be broadcast free of charge on the Performing Arts League’s website: https://www.palchattanooga.org/sunday-showcase.

Greg Miller, PAL president, said, “In 2021, the Performing Arts League celebrates our tenth anniversary supporting Chattanooga's youth involvement in the performing arts. To kick off the year, PAL is offering a special Video Showcase of young performers from local performing arts organizations. We would like to thank UTC's Department of Performing Arts for their partnership and assistance in making our video presentation possible. PAL’s Video Showcase of Young Performers will be presented free of charge for two online viewings on Jan. 15 and 16.

"Our goal in presenting these outstanding performances is to highlight the accomplishments of Chattanooga’s talented young actors, dancers, instrumentalists, and singers. We hope that after enjoying our Video Showcase, people will consider donating to the Performing Arts League so that we may continue our mission of providing support for performers like those you will see in this event.

"We are immensely proud of our contributions to Chattanooga’s talented youth and the excellent organizations that nurture their training and accomplishments. We know we have made a difference in the lives of these outstanding young people.”

Participating organizations include: Barger Academy of Fine Arts Movement Makers (“Christmas Magic” & “A Life Yet Experienced”), Chattanooga Ballet School Ensemble (“Sleeping Beauty Suite”), Chattanooga Boys Choir (“How Can I Keep from Singing”), Chattanooga Girls Choir (“Tennessee Mountain Home” & “Carol of the Bells”), Chattanooga Symphony & Opera Youth Orchestra (“Nimrod”), Chattanooga Theatre Centre Youth Theatre (“Lion King”), Christian Family Theater (“Arabian Nights” & “Flat Stanley”), Civic Ballet of Chattanooga (“Dance of the Snowflakes”), and Chattanooga's Indian Culture Dance Troupe (Bollywood Medley).

The performances will be interspersed with testimonials from recipients of PAL Grants and Scholarships over the past 10 years.
