MCC-Penn Valley Jazz in the Valley

Kansas City has a strong history of Jazz. Music legends like Charlie “Bird” Parker visited the Musicians Foundation on Vine for late-night jams, and Count Basie performed at the Drum Room. A variety of legendary Jazz musicians made Kansas City a frequent stop. Director and Kansas City native Robert Altman produced his Jazz-Age movie “Kansas City” here, using local talent. He revitalized the area for his set and expressed that there was no other place to produce his movie.

Because Kansas City was considered the “Paris of the Midwest”, Jazz helped cultivate the persona. Jazz greats, Lonnie McFadden, Charles Williams, and contemporary artists have continued to keep this genre alive.

To honor this history, the MCC-Penn Valley campus hosts Jazz in the Valley every September. Proceeds from this event will support the creation of a Music Engineering program at MCC.
