Ah, it’s time! Beat Hunger 2016 is heating up! It’s finally getting chilly, and the insects are heading underground. Don’t let the din of all of Chattanooga’s leaves falling on the same day confuse you… BEAT HUNGER is four weeks from tonight!
The concert will be held ONLY ONCE this year, on Monday, November 21, at 7:30 in the Hayes Concert Hall in the UTC Fine Arts Center. Admission will be the usual: a 2-dollar check donation to the Chattanooga Community Kitchen or two non-perishable food items.
Chattanooga’s Street-Drumming Ensemble, FUNKABUCKETS, will again entertain in the Lobby of the FAC at about 7:00, before the show. This incredible group of local drummers is NOT to be missed! They do not perform indoors often, and they won’t be HERE again for a year!
Beat Hunger 2016 will feature the concert hall premier of a new drumming quintet by UTC alumnus Erik Gehrke, which was commissioned for the recent Glass Street Block Party and given it’s premier in Sherman’s Reservation. This will be the first time the piece has been performed under roof, and behind closed doors! Other works include pieces by Blake Tyson, George Bizet, Neil DePonte and others. And of course, there are always guests, and surprises!
Come a part of this Chattanooga tradition, which is the beginning of the Holiday giving season in our beautiful city.
