2016 Charlie Parker Celebration

Charlie Parker Celebration is a 10-day, city-wide event dedicated to bringing attention and awareness to the vibrant Kansas City jazz scene, creating pride in our jazz history and showing how this history is relevant today.

Artist in Residence, Tivon Pennicott, will sit in for one set with local artists at each of the live events listed above.

We’ve got live jazz all over the Kansas City metro, but that’s not all!  We have also included educational jazz events in the celebration!  Join us for our kick-off event at the American Jazz Museum for “The Life and Legacy of Charlie Parker” with Ron McCurdy.  Other educational events include:
