The second installment of TEDxChattanooga’s Sessions will return on Thursday, April 25 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Barking Legs Theater.

In case you missed it, Sessions is a music-centered event that showcases local musicians where they will perform in an intimate listening-room environment + share their thoughts on the event theme.

This year’s theme is “Carry On” — which is TEDxChattanooga’s larger theme for all 2024 events. During Sessions, the three musicians will dive into what carrying on means to them through song and prose.
