Congratulations on another successful planning and execution of Kansas City’s 18th & Vine Jazz and Blues Festival. While no event of this magnitude is without it’s minor bumps and hiccups, I am extremely proud of the dedication, hard work and excellent execution you all provided to insure a wonderful experience for our festival patrons, artists, and festival sponsors. A job well done to you ALL!
In recognition of your hard work, the administrative offices will be closed Monday and Tuesday. The Museum and Blue Room operations will remain open as usual and department managers should determine the best system to award equivalent time off to staff in those areas.
I hope you will all take the well deserved time off to recharge and reflect positively on the great work you have just accomplished.
Special thanks to Suzetta Parks and her team; Bob Barry and our official photography team; and our hard working volunteers who collectively played a vital role in supporting your good work!
Festival follow up details and debrief opportunities will follow under separate cover later this week.
Again, many many thanks to you all for your Herculean efforts this year!
