“We are excited to help River City Company provide quality, free community programming for the renovated Miller Park,” said Todd Fortner, president and CEO of Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union. “Noontunes is a great opportunity for downtown employees to take a fun, relaxing mid-Wednesday break — while also giving local artists an outlet to perform.”

Each live performance has a host who will discuss with the artist his or her background and song selection providing insight not normally gathered from a standard show. Also, the musicians get the opportunity to perform to a unique crowd during a rare, lunchtime performance slot. 

“Over the last two seasons, Noontunes has grown both in attendance and in the impressive selection of local musicians,” said Meagan Shinn, program director at River City Company. “We’re especially looking forward to the 2018 season with the move to Miller Park which will accommodate even more attendees and support growth for downtown businesses.” 

Each performance will be open to the general public free of charge, live streamed and recorded and aired later on WUTC. This River City Company program sponsored by TVFCU is made possible through partners at SoundCorps, Chattanooga Convention & Visitors Bureau, Jazzanooga, WUTC and River City Sessions.
