Pellissippi State continues free concert series

The popular and free music concert series hosted by Pellissippi State Community College throughout the academic year presents five more performances for the 2012-13 season. Concerts in the series include offerings ranging from instrumental ensembles to choral performances to jazz/bluegrass “jams.”

All performances in the series are offered at no charge. However, donations are welcome at the door for the Pellissippi State Foundation on behalf of the Music Scholarship Fund.

The 2012-13 Pellissippi State Music Concert Series is one component of The Arts at Pellissippi State. The new arts series offers opportunities for the community to enjoy events presenting everything from music and theatre to cultural celebrations, lectures, and the fine arts.

The series showcases the talents of Pellissippi State students and faculty, as well as those of guest performers. The Arts at Pellissippi State offers special sponsorship opportunities and benefits for the Music Concert Series and other arts-related events, including invitations to receptions and preferred seating at concerts.

Pellissippi State’s Music program presents concerts as an All Steinway School. The Pellissippi State Foundation successfully conducted the All Steinway School fundraising campaign in order to elevate the program to world-class status. The community college boasts 13 Steinway pianos in studios, practice rooms and performance venues.

Concerts take place in the Clayton Performing Arts Center on the Hardin Valley Campus in Knoxville. Plenty of free parking is available. Early arrival at the performances is suggested for the best seating.
