Information and Deadlines
African American Heritage Month
Black History Month, or National African American History Month, is an annual celebration of achievements by black Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of African Americans in U.S. history. The event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating black history.

PLAY – Uncle Vanya
7:30 – 10:00 PM February 18, Craig Hall Balcony Theatre
Originally published in 1897, Chekhov’s classic existential comedy is resonating with contemporary audiences, thanks to this fresh new translation in everyday English. Vanya and his niece Sonya have devoted their lives to managing the family’s country estate. A large share of the proceeds has gone to support the urban lifestyle of Sonya’s father, Professor Serebryakov, whose late wife was Vanya’s sister. Now retired, the self-absorbed professor has returned to the estate with his beautiful, much younger second wife, Yelena. Their arrival disrupts the work of the farm and unleashes a torrent of long sublimated emotions. Both Vanya and his friend Astrov, the village doctor, fall under the spell of the sensuous Yelena, while Sonya confesses her unreciprocated love for Astrov, and all must face their regrets and unfulfilled dreams. Uncle Vanya plumbs the depths of the human psyche with insight, wit and compassion.

Jazz at the Q
8:00 pm – 10:00pm, February 19, 308 W. Commerical St. Springfield MO
Chris Burnett, a prominent alto saxophonist, jazz musician and composer, who began his active career at 18 years old as a performing artist with the US Army Bands Career Program, is performing live starting at 8pm located at the Q Enoteca (308 W Commercial St, Springfield, MO 65803)
Chris Burnett is an alto saxophonist, composer, recording artist and educator who began his active career at the age of 18 years old when he was selected by audition and accepted for musical service as a performing artist with the US Army Bands Career Program, where he performed and toured with several noteworthy professional US military band organizations for audiences at numerous locations in the continental United States and overseas. Subsequently, Mr. Burnett has continued as a life-long learner while performing music professionally for over three decades.
Born in Olathe, Kansas, he was ultimately raised in Paola after his family had traveled extensively in early childhood and lived at such places as: France, Michigan and Colorado. His studies in instrumental music began seriously under clarinetist, James R. Fuchs. Mr. Fuchs was the local school band director who exposed him to professional saxophone players like Charles Molina and Gary Foster during those formative years. He has studied with numerous significant teachers and at the Armed Forces School of Music, Webster University, Columbia College, Berklee College of Music, and American University.
Mr. Burnett is a former director of the Jazz Ensemble Program at Missouri University of Science and Technology (formerly University of Missouri-Rolla); a former director of the NATO Jazz Ensemble; and, a former featured performing member of the Faculty Jazz Ensemble of the Armed Forces School of Music that was under the direction of Maurice Williams, Jr. (former leader of the Army Blues Jazz Ensemble).
As a composer, Mr. Burnett is the 1995 5-Star Award of Merit Winner of the National Federation of Music Clubs for his original composition and arrangement for big band, titled “Daedalus”. “Daedalus” was initially recorded by the award-winning Engineer Center Jazz Ensemble and published on the highly acclaimed compact disc recording by the 399th US Army Band, titled “Essayons” – which was also the first-ever CD recording released in that particular military band’s history. Today, Chris Burnett has established a credible reputation as one of the finest alto saxophonists of his generation and is considered among Kansas City’s most respected jazz artists. He has two commercial CD recordings available on the Artists Recording Collective label.
