Headliner Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah, widely praised as a driving force in the resurgent jazz and instrumental movement, is a two-time Edison Award-winning and Grammy Award-nominated trumpeter, composer and producer. Jazziz has described his style as a "melding of various different influences and sounds from the African Diaspora to create a trademark sound of his own." Scott's new album, "Ancestral Recall", was released on March 19; and his first single, "Forevergirl" has been receiving critical acclaim.
Metro Art Presents showcases an exciting array of arts and cultural events at historic Union Station. From music and dance performances, film screenings and poetry readings to experimental and mixed-media presentations, the programs creatively activate downtown's primary transportation hub.
