Knoxville Choral Society
A group of extremely talented musicians, the Knoxville Choral Society has been committed to high quality performances as well as promoting the arts in Knoxville for over the last 50 years. An auditioned group, the Choral Society currently has over 170 singers coming from various backgrounds and professions. In recent years, the group has sung on a European tour in addition to a performance in Carnegie Hall in New York City. Since its inception in 1951, the Knoxville Choral Society has brought some of the best choral music to audiences around the world and hopes to continue to make an impact on the arts here in Knoxville.
GO! Contemporary Dance Works
The 43 member GO! Contemporary Dance Works is far more than your typical group of dancers. Consisting of students at Studio Arts for Dancers, GO! combines dance and athletics to provide high energy and highly entertaining performances. The group is also a committed member of the Knoxville arts community, spreading enthusiasm for contemporary dance throughout East Tennessee. GO! is known for blending contemporary ballet and modern dance with daring athleticism that appeals to audiences far beyond the devoted dancegoer.
Knoxville Pipes and Drums
Since 1991, the Knoxville Pipes and Drums have been working to spread knowledge of Scottish heritage throughout East Tennessee and beyond. Growing from its initial three members, the KPD now fields two bands that compete in the Eastern United States Pipe Band Association competitions. Not content to just perform all around the East Tennessee region, the Knoxville Pipes and Drums also provides free piping and drumming lessons to anyone who is interested.
Four Leaf Peat Traditional Irish band
Four Leaf Peat (FLP) was born out of the Irish traditional music scene in Knoxville, Tennessee and is dedicated to honoring and preserving the spirit of Irish music. While grounded in tradition and influenced by Ireland's traditional pipers, fiddlers and sigers, FLP also bows a hat to the more recent innovators of Irish music such as The Bothy Band, Planxty, Dervish and Lunasa. After playing together at the local session for some time, this group came together to play a benefit concert in 2004 to save the historic Bijou Theatre in downtown Knoxville and has been going strong ever since!
