Chattanooga is a smaller but scenic city with history, outdoor activities, revitalized downtown with beautiful water front AND an excellent symphony.

The Tivoli is a wonderful old, restored theater and adds ambiance to the overall musical experience. We live out of town and don't go as often as we would wish. We enjoy the traditioal as well as nontraditioal performances!
