Soaring Through the Decades

Members of the Skyhawk Elite Dance Team perform a dance called “Soaring Through the Decades” during the inaugural Northwest Tennessee Arts Festival, April 10. The Department of Music partnered with Weakley Arts Can and Weakley County Schools to host the festival. Several hundred safely gathered outdoors at the large music tent by Pacer Pond to enjoy three hours of vocal and instrumental music, dance, theatrical performances and visual arts exhibits. Ed Sargent (’82), a Grammy-nominated producer and the namesake for UT Martin’s guest artist series attended the event. “Despite the cool wind and morning rain, the Northwest Tennessee Arts Festival opened the first annual event with a huge ray of sunshine highlighting a variety of arts and artists from our communities,” Sargent said.
