Beat Hunger ‘05

Dr. Monte Coulter

Under the direction of Dr. Monte Coulter, Professor of Music, the UTC Percussion Ensemble will present “Beat Hunger ‘05” on Monday, November 21 at 7:30 p.m. in the Roland Hayes Concert Hall, UTC Fine Arts Center, at the corner of Vine and Palmetto Streets.

The UTC Percussion Ensemble has earned a reputation as a premier percussion group in the Southeast, performing works from the percussion literature on standard instruments, as well as the more exotic iron pipes and saws.

“’Beat Hunger ’05’ will feature the concert hall premier of ‘The Passage,” by Dr. Jonathan McNair, University of Chattanooga Foundation Assistant Professor of Music,” said Coulter. “This piece was commissioned by the Chattanooga Downtown Partnership to be performed at the opening of the Passage on the Chattanooga riverfront last June. It was performed on two distant stages simultaneously.”

The Beat Hunger concerts have become a Chattanooga tradition, and the beginning of the Christmas giving season.

“Chattanoogans are known for their love for good food, and for their generosity, and Beat Hunger is where these two traits combine to help the hungry and homeless in our community,” Coulter said. The program regularly draws 400-600 people, from around the region. All ages are welcome.

As in the past, the concert is a benefit for the Chattanooga Community Kitchen.

Please consider a donation of two non-perishable food items, or write a check to the Community Kitchen for two dollars. The Community Kitchen is also in need of donations of new, white socks of all sizes.

For more information, please call 425-4601.
