The Music of John Coltrane

Fri., Jan. 18, 8 p.m.

Pioneer and saxophonist John William Coltrane was just 40 years old when he died — and yet, he managed to leave behind an incomparable legacy. He was even adopted as a saint and is actively worshipped at the Yardbird Temple turned Coltrane Church in California. Few are better suited to pay tribute to Coltrane’s iconic body of work than the musicians selected for the DSO’s Music of John Coltrane event. Poncho Sanchez who, for more than three decades, has married traditional, gritty jazz with Latin American and South American influences, will join revered saxophonist and Detroit-native James Carter in celebrating Coltrane’s contributions to jazz and music at large. $19+

SuperNatural Woman: Closing Reception

Sat., Jan. 19, 8 p.m.

When Irwin House Gallery opened its doors last year, it did so nearly five months ahead of schedule: The gallery quickly changed its plans due to the death of Aretha Franklin. “SuperNatural Woman: Tribute to the Queen” was curated to honor the spirit of the late Queen of Soul, and features a range of mediums from artists Mahogany Jones, Makeba Rainey, Marsha Music, Noreen Dean Dresser, Steven Lopez, and others. For its closing reception, the gallery has arranged for a ’60s-style house party with music curated by Drake Phifer. Guests are “encouraged to don their funkiest ’60s, Aretha-inspired attire” — channel the energy from gallery’s location, as it is just blocks away from Franklin’s father’s New Bethel Baptist Church on Linwood Street and the singer’s childhood home on LaSalle Boulevard. suggested donation

Michigan Central Station Winter Festival

Starts Jan. 18. Mondays-Sundays, 5:30 p.m. Continues through Jan. 27

Ford Motor Co. is celebrating its recent acquisition of the old Michigan Central Station with a winter festival set to coincide with the North American International Auto Show. Organizers say to expect a 3D-light show projected onto the historic building's facade, live painting, ice carving, fire pits and s'mores, and food trucks. History buffs, take note: The company will also display artifacts that have been scrapped, stolen, or otherwise removed from the long-abandoned train station, which have been coming out of the woodwork in recent months — including the once grand train station's historic clock that was anonymously given to the company after it purchased the building.
