Live music fills MARTA stations during holiday season


DeKalb-based Nubian Sounds, who played during one of MARTA’s Artbound programs in November, were among the musicians selected to play for the holidays.

MARTA will feature live music from local musicians at eight rail stations through the end of 2017.

The 20 musicians were selected during a two-day audition held at Five Points Station in September. Their live performances during the holiday season are part of MARTA’s reinvigorated arts program developed to enhance the ridership experience through visual and performance arts.

The music represents different genres and will be performed live, daily from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Five Points, Hamilton E. Holmes, Kensington, Lindbergh, North Springs, and West End Stations and on Falcons game days and New Year’s Eve at Dome and Peachtree Center Stations. Please refer to the attached calendar for details.

“Atlanta is an incredible hub of dynamic talent in the arts,” said MARTA Arts Administrator Katherine Dirga. “Offering live music to our patrons makes the holiday commute more enjoyable and provides a large audience for local musicians.”

One percent of MARTA’s annual budget is allocated for arts-related programs.

Jennifer Warrilow played at the Five Points Station on Nov 20.
