On Friday, March 3, 2017 the Arts department of the Los Angeles Metro presents an evening with Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith. This will take place in Union Station’s Historic Ticketing Hall. Doors open at 8 PM and the show starts at 8:30.

Her music is a unique blend of rhythmic patterns and melodic pulses, inspired by Kaitlyn’s time spent on Orcas Island in Washington state. According to the event, her work “her creative work continues to be infused with and inspired by the vitality and serenity of Orcas.” Gabriel Reyes-Whittaker, known as Gifted & Blessed, will also play his music before Kaitlyn performs.

This event is free to attend, no reservation required. But seating is first-come, first-serve. Check Facebook or their website for more information.
