This past September 9-10th, more than 50 musicians performed at Music at the Intersection. Brought together by the Kranzberg Arts Council, in partnership with the River Arts Council and the Steward Family Foundation, the festival celebrated a range of music originating from the Mississippi River sister cities in its third year. An estimated 12,000 attendees traveled to the Grand Center Arts District to enjoy the music and festivities.

Artists included St. Louis natives like Smino, Angela Winbush and Keyon Harrold, as well as headliners Herbie Hancock, Taj Mahal, Thundercat, Snarky Puppy, Tank and the Bangas, the Fearless Flyers and Masego. For the 50th anniversary of hip-hop, artists like Grandmaster Flash, Arrested Development and Phony Ppl also performed.

Several connections tied Clayton to Music at the Intersection as well. April Fulstone, seventh grade literacy teacher at Wydown Middle School, DJ’ed at the festival as DJ Agile One, and Zac Srenco, a current senior at Clayton High School, is the grandson of Nancy and Ken Kranzberg, founders of the Kranzberg Arts Council.

Overall, the festival was successful and brought another year of jazz, funk, rap, hip-hop and soul to the St. Louis area.
