Symphonic Tales - Music to Our Ears

ArtsBuild and UTC logo combined

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga's Department of Performing Arts in partnership with the Chattanooga Public Library's Children's Department present Symphonic Tales, a music and literacy series for young children.

This program seeks to introduce instruments and music while also promoting literacy to children in a familiar setting. We blend musical pieces with fun stories, creating true sensory experiences. We encourage kids to let the music move them and to join in with the stories they love.

ABOUT SYMPHONIC TALES

Bouncing Babies!

Our popular Baby Bounce program is now happening at every branch! As babies grow, they learn by interacting, playing, imitating adults and by watching others.  In Baby Bounce, caregivers learn songs and finger-plays to use at home with their children.
