The UTC Performing Arts Series, formerly known as the Patten Performances, was inaugurated by the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in 1980 as the Dorothy Patten Fine Arts Series, in honor of one of Chattanooga’s most famous performing artists. Ms. Patten appeared in over 30 Broadway plays, countless touring and summer stock productions, television shows and the movie Botony Bay , with Alan Ladd and James Mason.

The series celebrated the opening of the then-new UTC Fine Arts Center and continues to bring nationally and internationally renowned artists to the University community and the Chattanooga area. Over the years the Fine Arts Center has hosted the finest talent in music, dance and theater, including Dave Brubeck, Isaac Stern, Rosanne Cash, Wynton Marsalis, BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance, Ramsey Lewis, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Pilobolus Dance Theatre, Dave Mason, The Tokyo String Quartet, Complexions Contemporary Ballet, the Vienna Boys Choir, The Acting Company, Diavolo, and SFJazz Collective, among many, many others.
 
In keeping with our mission to present the highest quality artists available, this season includes performances from the world renowned theatre companies Actors From The London Stage and LA Theatre Works along with Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, musical guests Mipso and The Malpass brothers.
