kcjazzJoin the swinging 17-piece Kansas City Jazz Orchestra, under the direction of Clint Ashlock, for a very special evening of great big band music, featuring an array of guest artists showcasing the vibrant, world-class Kansas City jazz scene.

You’ll know why we say Kansas City is Jazz! when young jazz lions such as Megan Birdsall, Allie Burik, Hermon Mehari, and Steve Lambert join forces with jazz veterans such as the internationally-acclaimed Bobby Watson, Dan Thomas, Matt Otto and Al Pearson!

This very special “Kansas City is Jazz!” showcase will highlight the music of jazz legends Count Basie, Jay McShann and Charlie ‘Bird’ Parker. Clint Ashlock, The KCJO’s conductor and artistic director, has written a special tribute arrangement of Charlie Parker’s composition, “Confirmation,” which will bring
the concert to a swinging, rip-roaring finale!

Don’t miss this rare and grand opportunity to hear The Kansas City Jazz Orchestra and all these sensational KC jazz artists ‘on one stage’: The magnificent Muriel Kauffman Theatre at Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts.
