Dear Friend & Supporter of the Wichita Jazz Festival,

Thanks to your support, the 2017 Wichita Jazz Festival was one of the biggest and most successful in years, and planning is now underway for the coming year.

This year saw a remarkable and moving headlining performance from Pat Metheny; great shows from Alaturka, Deborah Brown and the Kandinsky Effect; a jazz brunch, free showing of the film A Joyful Noise and a talk from Sun Ra biographer Paul Youngquist. There were performances from Wichita Jazz Festival Sessions Band, a talk about new jazz books, a kick-off panel discussion about Wichita Jazz, and our first every ICT Pop-Up Park Party. Not to mention a jam session, the annual Invitational and a special finale concert at the Bartlett Arboretum.
