Two of Chattanooga’s unique music ensembles will perform their seventh annual popular joint concert in the Dora Maclellan Brown Memorial Chapel at Covenant College on Thursday, April 9th at 7:00 PM. In this ongoing “Battle of Woodwinds & Brass,” the CHATTANOOGA CLARINET CHOIR and JERICHO BRASS each perform about 20 minutes of music and then combine to play some selections together. This year, the ensembles will perform together Verdi’s La Forza Del Destino Overture and the Anchor’s Aweigh march. This concert is free and all are welcome to attend.
