Serve as a LISTENING Body to the Jazz Community
When our “Listening Committee” was formed, we wanted to ensure jazz musicians, venue owners, patrons and educators had an entity to share their challenges and their successes with. We wanted the jazz community to feel heard so we could collectively work together to make an impact on jazz in Kansas City.
Today, we host 6 “Stakeholder Meetings” to capture the interests and desires of the jazz community. Every other month jazz lovers come together (virtually) to create an open dialogue about jazz in our city. Each lunch is moderated by KCUR’s Steve Kraske with special guests. See Full Schedule Below:
