The Chattanooga Singers was formed in 1969, soon after the University of Chattanooga merged with the University of Tennessee system and became UTC. This group has performed extensively throughout the world. Literature for the Chattanooga Singers includes standard choral literature for concert choir and also includes major works performed with orchestra. The Chattanooga Singers currently rehearse on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:05pm until 1:30pm. There is one 40 minute sectional rehearsal per week scheduled beginning a few weeks into the semester and is arranged around the students’ schedules. Any student wishing to join Chattanooga Singers may do so following the successful audition by registering for MUS 020-001 for undergraduate credit or MUS 500-020 for graduate credit. The course is repeatable and receives one hour credit. The Chattanooga Singers is directed by the UTC Director of Choral Activities, Dr. J. Kevin Ford.
