Info & Tickets


Before there was hip-hop, rock, and pop, Kansas City Jazz was all the rage – where the likes of Benny Moten and Charlie Parker birthed a sound that would forever change the landscape of music. Experience the evolution of jazz from ragtime to bebop as KC Jazz Alive presents Kansas City musicians alongside tenor saxophonist Tivon Pennicott (3-time Grammy Award Winner) and pianist Sullivan Fortner (2015 Cole Porter Fellowship in Jazz winner) in conjunction with the 4th Annual Charlie Parker Celebration.

$75 tickets and sponsors have access to open bar and party in Shareholder’s Room!
