Last Sunday marked the final performance of a small tour that I have been on with the Washington Cornett and Sackbutt Ensemble (WCSE). We played twice in Chattanooga and twice in Knoxville (both in Tennessee).
We got a chance to play many times within the span of a few days, which helped us grow as a group.
All the traditional genres are represented but there is also the bizarre and fantastic, which are just as prevalent and give credence to a popular local sticker “Keep Chattanooga Weird. ” For example, there are 125 public art sculptures in the area from North Chattanooga to the Sculpture Gardens.
Ainsley, thanks so much for your comment. Up until this trip, I hadn’t visited Chattanooga for a couple of decades. I felt like it was much different from before–and really more vibrant and interesting! –Stan
