Description: A Night of of music, dance, and conversation on Black American popular music from big band jazz to hip-hop. KU Presents Brass & Boujee – A night of music, dancing, and conversation on Black American popular music from big band jazz to hip-hop. Join us in welcoming the Marcus Lewis Big Band Brass & Boujee to Lawrence for a FREE show at The Granada! This 18-piece jazz ensemble will join forces with Kansas City emcees Kemet the Phantom (The Phantastics) and Kadesh Flow to reveal a fresh and innovative fusion of Big Band jazz and Kansas City Hip-Hop. Renowned composer, arranger and trombonist Marcus Lewis will present original compositions, big band arrangements of Kemet and Kadesh's songs, and full jazz band covers of recent pop tunes such as Kendrick Lamar's "Alright." Prior to the big band performance, Marcus will provide a brief history of big band jazz to hip-hop within the context of Black American popular music, and what he is aspiring to accomplish with his latest project Brass and Boujee. While you may not recognize Marcus Lewis by name, you might have heard him in recordings or on tour with world famous artists including Janelle Monae, Bruno Mars, Prince, and Aretha Franklin, just to name a few. In addition, local Lawrence hip-hop sensation and KU alumnus Cuee will warm up the stage as the opening act and The Phantastics will follow-up the Big Band for your dancing pleasure with their original KC fusion of funk, rap, rock and soul, fronted by Kemet the Phantom and Kim “Phirst Lady” Newsome. And finally, local Lawrence DJ Approach [Sean Hunt] will close out the night. The event is co-hosted between KU Office for Diversity & Equity, College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, department of African and African American Studies, the Hall Center for the Humanities, and The Granada. As a free event aimed toward building community and social consciousness during Black History month, we invite you to bring non-perishable canned goods to the concert to donate to Just Food, the Douglas County food bank who provides food to individuals experiencing food insecurity including KU students.

Kansas City Symphony Classical Concert: Bernstein, Prokofiev and Schumann
Kansas City Symphony Classical Concert: Bernstein, Prokofiev and Schumann

Get more info about this event »

Description: David Zinman, guest conductor Stephen Waarts, violin (Underwritten by Almy Legacy Fund) BERNSTEIN Symphonic Suite from On the Waterfront PROKOFIEV Violin Concerto No. 2 SCHUMANN Symphony No. 2 This Kansas City Symphony concert opens with Bernstein’s atmospheric On the Waterfront Suite, which brings together the best moments of the iconic conductor/composer’s film score. Prokofiev’s Second Violin Concerto is a work of considerable charm and grace, demanding a virtuoso of the highest order. Schumann’s Second is one of his most personal statements, a work of unique beauty and power. Perhaps Schumann’s struggles are reflected in a work that moves from the agitation of the first two movements, to the haunting lyrical beauty of the third, to the triumphant finale. Tickets from $25. For more information or tickets, please visit kcsymphony.org or call (816) 471-0400. Submitted by: Beth Buchanan Kansas City Symphony
