Miguel Zenón
MIGUEL ZENÓN’S IDENTITIES ARE CHANGEABLE BIG BAND

Thursday, February 11 at 7:30 p.m.
Fine Arts Center Concert Hall, Chamber Seating

Saxophonist Miguel Zenón offers his most ambitious project yet with a song cycle for his quartet augmented by a 12-piece big band. The evening-length work explores the experience of Puerto Ricans who have moved to the mainland, particularly New York City. Zenón is the most celebrated altoist of his generation, a multi-Grammy nominee and Guggenheim and MacArthur “Genius” Fellow who has extended jazz’s conceptual reach with a series of albums exploring the music of Puerto Rico, where he was born.

It’s time for a carnival! Shake out your winter blues with the energetic, driving music of the Creole culture. Over the past decade, globalFEST has become one of the most dynamic global music platforms in North America. What started as an annual showcase in New York has grown into an international brand, building audiences for world music with stages at SXSW, Bonnaroo, and beyond. For its first North American tour, globalFEST will feature the reigning queen of Haitian songs Emeline Michel, Rio’s innovative samba masters Casuarina, and Jamaica’s one-stringed guitar virtuoso, Brushy One String.

“What is Brazilian Samba?” Audience members are invited to a pre-performance talk by the artists at 6:30 p.m. in the Concert Hall.
