The UTC Percussion Ensemble has earned a reputation through the Southeast as a premier college percussion ensemble, performing works on standard percussion instruments, as well as more exotic pitched and non-pitched sources. 

“’Beat Hunger regularly draws hundreds of people and collects money and food donations at this time of the year.  The annual ‘Beat Hunger’" concert has become a Chattanooga tradition, and marks the beginning of the Christmas giving season,” said Dr. Monte Coulter, Director of Percussion Studies and Professor of Music.

This program is suitable for children and percussionists of all ages.
