The Chattanooga Theatre Centre, located in Coolidge Park, will begin a series of concerts on its riverfront lawn on Saturday, Sept. 19, at 7 p.m. with a performance by local percussionist Kofi Mawuko and the Ogya World Music Band.

A native of Ghana who has traveled the world as a master drummer, Mawuko plays high-energy world music that blends jazz and soul-soothing reggae beats. He and his band perform the hot, sultry rhythms of West Africa, the Caribbean and the Americas with energetic, original compositions.

A happy hour will kick off the evening at 6 p.m with concessions, beer and wine available.

The Theatre Centre is launching its initiative to spotlight the local arts community with performances on its riverfront lawn and on its stages.

To ensure social distancing, guests will be seated in designated areas on the lawn separated by 6-foot aisles. There will be a touchless check-in for ticket holders, and masks are required. Blankets and chairs are welcome.

Admission is $12.50 for adults and $6.50 for children ages 12 and under.

To purchase tickets, call the CTC box office at 423-267-8534 or go online at TheatreCentre.com.
