Music Events Reinvented Virtually Through Chattanooga State

Wednesday, February 10, 2021 - by Betty Proctor, Chattanooga State

Chattanooga State’s Department of Fine Arts didn’t allow the pandemic to slow them down this past fall. Call it reinventing. That same “can-do” spirit has been infused into the spring semester with plans to present nine musical events, all of which can be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home. All performances will be live-streamed or pre-recorded, available on YouTube. 

Thursday, March 4: The Chattanooga State Symphonic Band, directed by Nicholas Hartline, will present an evening of band literature themed, “Diversity,” featuring female composers, composers of color, and individuals from the LGBTQIA community.
