In collaboration with The Urban Core Group and BAC Musical Instruments/Horn Doctor, the 5th Annual Kansas City Charlie Parker Celebration will include a new and exciting networking event entitled Urban Core: Networking for Bird. As the title suggests, this event is all about the networking. “Strategically aligned with the Urban Core’s successful event model – great food, cash bar, hosted program, connected to a unique urban site, this event adds a couple of wonderful twists to the mix…” states Steve Hargrave, Treasurer of Kansas City Jazz ALIVE.
The event will connect attendees to BAC Musical Instruments/ Horn Doctor and its impressive staff. BAC President and Master Craftsman Mike Corrigan notes, “we are thrilled to be a part of this year’s Charlie Parker Celebration. Connecting in this way through the work of the Urban Core Group offers a win-win opportunity for us to provide micro tours for its members to experience the exciting work being done at one of the only remaining custom brass instrument manufacturers in America.” Speakers Bureau Co-Chairs Doug Rushing, and Jen Enderson will give remarks on behalf of Kansas City Jazz ALIVE and the Charlie Parker Celebration.
To round it all out, the event will include live jazz featuring Saxophonist Todd Wilkinson and Guitarist Charles Gatschet. Don’t miss it on August 22, 2018, 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm.
