Our all new summer exhibitions are officially OPEN!

Within/Earshot Jazz Festival 2021

BIMA’s annual festival celebrating all things jazz is back in person at the Museum this October. With four concerts, four films, and two lectures, this festival is sure to have something for every jazz cat out there!

Filming Notice

BIMA is excited to be working in partnership with KCTS 9 to film and broadcast all 2021 Within/Earshot Jazz Festival concerts! This level of exposure for our small but mighty Museum is a game-changer. Due to production necessities, capacity will be limited beyond BIMA’s COVID guidelines. BIMA and the KCTS 9 crew have worked to ensure that no sightlines will be permanently obscured, but views might be temporarily obscured due to a single moving camera and operator at the front of the stage. We appreciate your understanding that you’re part of a live studio audience this year and that by purchasing a ticket, you agree to appear on camera during the recording.

Health & Safety Policy

BIMA requires proof of full COVID-19 vaccination for all attendees 12 years of age and older for programs held in the Frank Buxton Auditorium or BIMA Classroom. Masks are required for all attendees five years of age and older regardless of vaccination status. Learn more about this policy here.
