UTC Performances is the successor to the performing arts series formerly known as the Patten Performances, which 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.
UTC Presents the River City Sessions is our new series, created in partnership with the well-known local performance presenter River City Sessions, focusing on Americana and blues musicians from the Southeast along with local performers. We are extremely excited about this new direction and hope you will be as well.

We look forward to seeing you in Cadek Hall in September!
