KCJO 5: Black Box KC
Updated: Aug 6, 2022
This will be the final concert of the 2022 Black Box Summer Series, featuring KCJO 5. The all-star quintet is comprised of Kansas City Jazz Orchestra members and will feature David Chael on alto saxophone, Artistic Director Clint Ashlock at the trumpet, pianist Charles Williams, bassist James Albright, and John Kizilarmut at the drums.
This is a wonderful opportunity to hear several members of the orchestra stretch out in a small group setting. This up close and personal concert is the last installment of the summer’s Black Box series.
In 2012, The Kansas City Jazz Orchestra moved to the fabulous Helzberg Hall, in the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts for its subscription series of four concerts per season. The Orchestra also performs regularly at other venues in Kansas City and the surrounding region, participating in festivals, educational programs, and USO-style dance events. Riff Generation and JCJO 5 are a part of the orchestra’s ongoing outreach.
There are exciting shows planned for the 2022-2023 concert season, including performances by trumpeter Sean Jones and vocalist Deborah Brown. Season tickets to the KCJO Kauffman Center shows on sale now:
