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.

Performances will be held, as always, on the first Friday of each month in Cadek Hall's recently and beautifully renovated 220-seat piano recital hall where we plan to showcase these artists who have made themselves a part of Chattanoga's fabric through their amazing performances and storytelling. All seats are $10, general admission. We look forward to seeing you in Cadek Hall in September!
While we continue to plan for upcoming performances, we can announce that on Friday, September 6, 2019, we will be presenting the one and only Mitch Ryder with guest artist Jess Goggins. Showtime, as always, is at 7:30 pm. Tickets are on sale online or by calling 423-425-4269 and will also be available (if any seats are left) the night of show beginning at 6:30pm.
