“The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Symphony Orchestra will present a free concerto concert, open to the public, at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 12, in the UTC Fine Arts Center’s Roland Hayes Concert Hall,” writes Shawn Ryan in Thursday’s (1/26) Pulse (Chattanooga, TN). “The concert, which also will be available to watch via livestream, will feature four student concerto winners. ‘Our concerto concert is one of the most challenging yet enjoyable concerts each year,’ UTC Symphony Orchestra conductor Sandy Morris said. ‘The orchestra members, instead of being featured, get to accompany their talented fellow students who perform impressive solos that showcase their hard work and talent.’… The 50-member college/community orchestra includes University music majors and non-majors, UTC music faculty members, area music educators and other amateur and professional musicians from the region.” The program includes instrumental works by Alan Hovhaness, Johann Hummel, and Carl Maria von Weber, and an aria by Pietro Mascagni.
