About the event

This show will be free for students of all ages, teachers, and attendees 65+.

Nina Simone was a singer, pianist, songwriter, and civil rights activist. Mostly known as a jazz singer, her music blended gospel, blues, folk, pop, and classical styles. No popular singer was more closely associated with the Civil Rights Movement than Simone.

Listen to a lead up selection of music and presentations from four-time GRAMMY® Award winning producer Cheryl Pawelski and five-time GRAMMY® Award winning engineer Michael Graves. They will present their 2021 restoration of Nina Simone’s Little Girl Blue. All music for this event will be played on our amazing C4RM sound system, brought in just for the show!  Doors open at 6:30 pm. This show benefits the Center For Recorded Music, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization bringing to life a new world-class cultural center and music education facility in Kansas City. We have free tickets for students of all ages, teachers, and 65+ that include snacks and drinks, but no alcohol.  For everyone else tickets are available for $10 including Non-Alcoholic Beverages or $30 which includes Snacks, beverages, and Alcoholic Beverages (21+ for Alcohol, ID required).  Please bring cash for tipping bartending staff as credit cards cannot be accepted.  UMKC Catering requires us to have a final food order prior to the show, so the Snack and Beverage tickets will only be on sale until the Wednesday March 20th.  We are sorry, but we will not be able to accommodate any additional food requests once ticket sales are closed.
