Jazz music emanated from the walls of the Bolender Center last Friday on a beautiful spring evening as people enjoyed our Free First Friday event.

KCB Dancers performed segments from Hey-Hay, Going to Kansas City, while choreographer Donald McKayle spoke about the inspiration behind the segments along with stories from his long-time career as a performer and choreographer.

Kansas City native Jazz pianist Joe Cartwright accompanied on the piano, while radio personality Chuck Haddix narrated throughout the event. Below are some snapshots of the jazz filled evening!
