Greg Miller, PAL president, said, “We are delighted to present our 2023 Sunday Showcase celebrating Chattanooga’s talented young performing artists. The event will be under the direction of Steve Ray, Associate Head, Department of Performing Arts at UTC. Young performers from these organizations will be participating:  Barger Academy Movement Makers, Center for Creative Arts Project Motion, Center for Creative Arts Choo Choo Kids, Chattanooga Ballet School Ensemble, Chattanooga Girls Choir, Chattanooga Boys Choir, Chattanooga Symphony Youth Orchestra, Chattanooga Theatre Centre Youth Theatre, Civic Ballet of Chattanooga, Indian Cultural Dance Troupe. 

"For over 10 years, PAL has supported and encouraged our young people in the development of their talent and creativity as actors, dancers, and musicians.  This year’s Sunday Showcase at UTC’s Fine Arts Center provides a well-deserved stage to display their artistry and enthusiasm.  We hope everyone will join us in appreciating and applauding these remarkable young performers.

“This year’s Sunday Showcase is dedicated to Sonia Young, Chattanooga’s legendary ‘Purple Lady.’  Sonia was a devoted advocate for the arts throughout her life; giving both her time and expertise to make sure the arts were available to all.  Sonia was also instrumental in establishing the Performing Arts League’s first Sunday Showcase in 2014.”
