The John Hamm Performing Arts Seroes at Covenant College

John Hamm Performing Arts Series

The John Hamm Performing Arts Series brings world-renowned musical artists to Covenant’s campus to offer recitals and educational opportunities that serve students as well as the surrounding Chattanooga and Lookout Mountain communities.

 

Through the performing arts series, each featured artist offers a recital on campus as well as master classes and opportunities for one-on-one voice lessons or coaching in specific repertoire. The recitals and master classes are free and open to the public, thanks to the partnership of generous donors.

 

The series is named after former Covenant professor Dr. John Hamm and is coordinated by David Tahere, assistant professor of music. Hamm served in the music department at Covenant for more than thirty years. During his tenure at Covenant, Hamm was known for his investment in the Chattanooga music community. In 1985, he founded Choral Arts of Chattanooga, which still provides the city with choral music, thirty years later.

 

The performing arts series seeks to carry on Hamm’s legacy of engaging with and giving back to the local music community. Recital tickets are available, free of charge, by completing this ticket request form, by emailing HammSeries@covenant.edu, or by calling 706.419.1459.

"Homogeneity isn’t the point of being in union with Christ. Being mysteriously brought together by one Spirit with all of our differences is the stunning truth of the gospel in Christ."
