Flowerpot Music Postponed Due To Expected Storms

Monday, June 21, 2021

An event in which the public was invited to celebrate International Make Music Day by joining a group of folks at Coolidge Park to take part in Flowerpot Music and play a flower pot has been postponed.

It was originally set for tonight (Monday), but will be rescheduled due to expected storms.

Flowerpot Music was created by celebrated composer Elliot Cole and directed by percussionist Peter Ferry. Its purpose is to welcome interested people to join in a guided experience of making beautiful sounds with flower pots. It is not necessary to read music nor to have a musical background.

Flowerpot Music is designed to feel almost like playing games and can be performed successfully by first-timers or by professionals, said organizers.

In Chattanooga, this event will be led by composer and UTC professor Dr. Jonathan McNair as a part of Make Music Chattanooga.

Flowerpot Music was one of over 30 Make Music Chattanooga events set for today (Monday, June 21). A full schedule of events is available here: www.concerthopper.com/makemusiccha.
