Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Pilot Flying J, all contributions raised at this black tie event will fund scholarships to attract the very best young musicians to the University of Tennessee.

Guests will enjoy an exciting variety of musical entertainment by renowned UT Music faculty and outstanding students in genres ranging from light opera to percussion, from classical to jazz.
