The mission of Kansas City Jazz ALIVE is to:
V-Function as a VOICE for the jazz community
The “Voice Committee” accepted the mission to develop a Speakers Bureau available to speak at meetings, conventions, business, schools, and other facilities as requested. The Speakers Bureau will strive to develop and maintain a fresh and on-going program that will introduce new audiences to the origins, personalities, sounds, and living traditions that define jazz music in general, and Kansas City jazz in particular. The goal of the KC Jazz Alive Speakers Bureau will be to focus not just on the past and present, but seek to demonstrate that the music has a vital future as well.
To participate as a speaker, the “Ideas Committee” invites anyone with an enthusiastic interest in jazz to contact KC Jazz ALIVE to learn more about being a part of the Speakers Bureau. You must be willing to follow a basic outline of the message we hope to convey: that jazz is ALIVE in Kansas City, the fascinating history bound to Kansas City’s most notable and influential jazz figures, and the still vibrant live jazz presence in the city today! Simply email Speakers@KCJazzALVE.org with your interest and contact information and a member of the “Ideas Committee” will be in touch within 24 hours!
