This year, the 2020 Wichita Jazz Festival will present a brand new Ad Astra Concert. The Ad Astra Concert will feature our very own WJF Sessions Band to showcase the superior musicianship close to home. To finish the evening, Kansas City trombonist Marcus Lewis will perform with his quintet.
While in Kansas City, Marcus Lewis keeps busy by performing with his quintet, 18-piece big band, and teaching jazz trombone at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Lewis has performed at notable venues all across the world including the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, New Orleans Jazz Festival, and the Sydney Opera House. Alongside his list of notable venues, Lewis has performed or recorded with top musicians such as Aretha Franklin, Prince, Janelle Monáe, The Barkays, Quincy Jones, and many more.
