Virtual Band

Introducing the Five Virtual Band Concert

During our time of social distancing, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and Hamilton County Schools would like to invite you to participate in our virtual concert band.

Participation is open to music students anywhere.

How it works

  • Download the music and practice. When you are ready, record yourself performing with the conducting video. Submission: Due to the recent storm damage in Chattanooga and the surrounding areas, the submission deadline has been extended to Monday, April 20, 2020.
  • Record in landscape format as a mp4 or mov format.
  • Use headphones to listen to the conducting video so that we record only you.
  • Percussion: We understand that you may not have access to certain instruments (e.g. timpani) at home. If you own the correct instrument, please choose that part. If not, feel free to perform on similar instruments (e.g. bells instead of chimes, etc.) or simply be creative.

About the music

Kenyon Wilson's composition for concert band, Five, was created in response to the July 16, 2015 terrorist attack on Chattanooga.

Five honors the lives of Carson A. Holmquist, Randall Smith, Thomas J. Sullivan, Squire K. "Skip" Wells and David A. Wyatt by concluding with musical representation of the missing-man formation.
