Soundscapes at the KMA: December 2023



Welcome to Soundscapes at the KMA, a monthly concert series that combines the magic of art and live music at the Knoxville Museum of Art. We’ve curated an exciting lineup of musical acts spanning a range of genres that will take the stage one Friday evening a month from December to August. Enjoy the performance and a cocktail in beautiful Bailey Hall or explore the art on view as music weaves through the galleries. Soundscapes is an experience designed to elevate your senses and lift your spirit. Kick-off your weekend in an extraordinary atmosphere that allows you to see, hear, and feel art in a whole new way.


Get ready for a magical holiday experience like no other at the Knoxville Museum of Art. It’s time for the “My Favorite Things” All-Star Christmas Concert! It’s the season premier of Soundscapes at the KMA (formerly Alive After Five). This concert will bring together a stellar lineup of musical virtuosos to create an unforgettable evening of festive joy. The ensemble features the smooth and soulful sounds of Miami saxophonist Ron James, the funky bass grooves of Atlanta-based Teja Veal, and the electrifying guitar skills of Memphis maestro Cameron Moore. Drummer extraordinaire Tre Harris keeps the beat alive, while the enchanting vocals of Jasmine Evans add a touch of magic to the performance. Guiding you through this musical journey is the charismatic keyboardist and event host, Brian Clay.

This phenomenal band is set to deliver your favorite holiday classics with unique and memorable twists, blending their diverse talents to create a one-of-a-kind Christmas celebration. From traditional tunes to modern favorites, each song will be brought to life in a style that only this exceptional ensemble can deliver.
