A new music series coming to Miller Plaza for the noon crowd
CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – The River City Company announces a weekly music series called Noontunes.
It will feature a local artist each week to perform a free concert at Miller Plaza.
The series will run on Wednesdays from noon until 1PM, May through July.
The show will be recorded and played back at a later date on WUTC.
“River City Company is excited to continue our work to animate Downtown by launching this lunchtime concert series in Miller Plaza,” states Meagan Shinn, Program Manager at River City Company. “Noontunes will offer a culturally rich experience during a nontraditional time of the day while also providing a platform and a new type of audience for local performers.”
Lunch crowds will hear a variety of musical forms, from the blues of Rick Rucshing, to the bluegrass of Slim Pickens and the rock of The Bohannons.
“Through Noontunes performances, SoundCorps is excited to help local musicians grow their audience,” states Stratton Tingle, Executive Director of SoundCorps. “Not only will the in-person and on-radio spotlights help artists advance their careers, it will also encourage Chattanoogans to more easily connect with local music providers. We hope that these showcases will be especially appreciated by downtown daily workers who may not be able to attend late-night local music offerings.”
