Listening


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. 

VividVision25 Sessions

Your personal vision and direction of your business, institution or career is vital to community advancement! KC is blessed to have numerous jazz venues, good concert offerings, devoted fans and focused music education. 

 How could the scene go from good to great? What does the scene look like to you in 2 years? What would you like to see in your area? (Musician, Venue, Education, Audience) What do you think of it now? What are the challenges? As a community catalyst, KC Jazz ALIVE is formatting a more vivid vision from your visions, collecting all the possibilities. Join our sessions to be part of the discussion and the future of jazz in Kansas City. 

We host 6 “VividVision Sessions” per year to capture the interests and desires of the jazz community. Every other month jazz lovers come together 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:
