For nearly fifty years, the Wichita Jazz Festival has been dedicated to fostering great jazz in Wichita and raising the next generation of Kansas jazz musicians. Our concerts and annual Festival bring in some of the greatest names in jazz, and our educational programs give young players the opportunity to work with professional musicians to continue America's musical tradition in our home town.

The Bebop Brigade is a group of special supporters who have personally contributed $100 or more to the Wichita Jazz Festival. The efforts of these individuals is crucial in keeping the Wichita Jazz Festival a growing enterprise that brings world-class jazz to Wichita on a regular basis and fosters the upbringing of Wichita's next generation of jazz musicians.

This April 4-16, the Wichita Jazz Festival will be featuring yet another very exiting program of music, including this year's headlining act: PAT METHENY!
