UTC's Department of Performing Arts is proud
to present the 2017 Collegiate Choral Festival in the Roland Hayes Concert Hall. The festival will combine choruses from
UTC, Chattanooga State Community College, Cleveland State Community College,
Dalton State College, Northeast Alabama Community College, and Southwest Virginia
Community College in a joint concert featuring the music of UTC Professor
Roland Carter in honor of his 75th birthday. Each school will perform
individually and then combine with Professor Carter serving as guest conductor
to perform some of his most well known arrangements. The evening will conclude
with a performance of "Lift Every Voice and Sing," one of Professor
Carter's most famous works to date.
The event is free and open to the public,
and a reception to honor Professor Carter will follow the performance in the
lobby of the UTC Fine Arts Center.
