Jazzanooga kicks off Hunter Museum Sunday specials
As the birthplace of jazz figures such as Bessie Smith and Lovie Austin, Chattanooga has a vibrant jazz heritage. Jazzanooga is a citywide celebration of jazz that draws on that heritage.
In the words of Jazzanooga’s founders, jazz is “a perfect reflection of the Greater Chattanooga area’s diverse and thriving community,” and their ultimate aim is to provide educational and performance opportunities for people of all ages.
Though Jazzanooga festivities usually occur in April, jazz lovers can now look forward to a series of Jazzanooga brunches throughout the year. The Hunter Museum, which has been a Jazzanooga partner since it began in 2011, will host three Jazzanooga Sunday brunches featuring live jazz, good food and great art.
Each installment of this brunch series will begin with a catered meal at 11 a.m. and include musical performances by gifted regional talent. The first of these brunches will be held on Sunday, Sept. 14 and will feature Shane Morrow and Friends.
Tickets must be purchased in advance by visiting huntermuseum.org or calling (423) 267-0968. Brunch tickets that include a mimosa and Bloody Mary bar can be purchased for an additional fee.
