This season is rapidly coming to a close.
March was a very busy month for the Chattanooga Music Club. Our third Saint Patrick’s Purse was a huge success, both fun and profitable. Ticket sales and the silent auction added money to our scholarship and organ funds.
At the rededication of the Community Theater in Memorial Auditorium, the CMC made a major contribution to the City of Chattanooga in the form of a 9’ Baldwin concert grand piano. This piano is to reside in the Community Theater and be used for its various events.
And finally, following our annual scholarship competition, we awarded scholarships to nine outstanding young musicians, high school seniors who will study music in college.
We will hear these winners perform at our Spring Tea, which will take place April 21 at 2:30pm at First Cumberland Presbyterian Church, and the installation of new officers will be done by honored guest Monique Berke.
May brings the season to a close with a very special program which will feature past scholarship winners: Tim Hinck, piano (1999), Hans Anderson, cello (2005); Evelyn Petcher, violin (2006); Josh Coleman, piano (2012); John Burton, trumpet (2013).
