Jazz Chats

Each Kansas City Jazz Orchestra Signature Series performance is preceded by an informal 30-minute discussion on the evening's program delivered by Artistic Director, Clint Ashlock. These engaging "chats" offer listeners the opportunity to gain a little insight into the composers, musical elements, and historical context of the evening's featured repertoire. Jazz Chats begin one hour before the concert. Bring your questions!
