on its mission, build its programs and achieve its goals. Ticket
revenues alone are insufficient to cover the costs of performances. The
KCJO relies on the generous support of individuals and organizations
who share our dream of preserving and promoting jazz. Whether you are a
dedicated jazz aficionado, concerned with dwindling American traditions
or simply wish to support big band concert opportunities, please
consider supporting The Kansas City Jazz Orchestra.
