Makaya McCraven: In These Times

Schermerhorn Symphony Center

2/5

Sunday7:30 PM

Buy Tickets

A true visionary helping to shape the future of jazz, Makaya McCraven represents a rising generation of globally-minded, genre-bending music makers. Hailing from Chicago’s vibrantly creative jazz scene, this cutting-edge drummer, producer and sonic collagist draws on hip-hop and other styles to push the boundaries of jazz and rhythm to create forms of his own. For this very special Schermerhorn appearance, he’ll bring a 13-piece band to present In These Times, a large-scale sociopolitical-themed performance of poly-metered repertoire. Complemented by archival film footage of black musicians and activists, it also features a spoken-word element that draws on interviews by the late oral historian Studs Terkel.

The Aaron Diehl Trio

Schermerhorn Symphony Center

4/2

Sunday7:30 PM

Buy Tickets

Bringing together the jazz and classical traditions, pianist-composer Aaron Diehl transforms the piano into an orchestral vessel in the spirit of beloved predecessors Ahmad Jamal, Erroll Garner, Art Tatum and Jelly Roll Morton. Just as likely to invoke the influence of Prokofiev, Mozart or even Philip Glass, this singular artist has cultivated an authentic, expansive and original sense of style that will resonate brilliantly in the crystalline acoustical setting of the Schermerhorn.
