The Leawood Arts Council will host the Sundays in the Park Concert Series for 2018 each Sunday evening, August 12 through September 2. All concerts are free and begin at 6:00 pm.

The Arts Council is excited to welcome Pablo Sanhueza & KC Latin Jazz All Stars for the first time as part of this concert series. KC Latin Jazz All-Stars is celebrating 15 years under the direction of Pablo Sanhueza. The group plays Latin American and Caribbean music across the Midwest.

Chilean born-and-raised Latin percussionist, Sanhueza plays the timbales as well as leading the band. Since coming to Kansas City in 1996, he has raised awareness of Latin American and Caribbean music through live performance and by building relationships with youths and local institutions.

All Stars play Sala and Latin Jazz providing cultural immersion and protecting the evolution on Latin Jazz in our community. Other band members are Evan Hoffman, congas; Trevor Smith, keys; Antonio Reyes, bass; Trevor Turla, trombone; and Daniel Dissmore, trumpet.

Dust off your dance shoes, learn to Salsa, or just sit back and enjoy the music. Fans will be delighted to see the group perform in Ironwoods Park for this free concert. Bring your friends and entire family for a relaxing evening in the park. In the event of rain or severe heat, the concert will move into the Lodge at Ironwoods Park.

Please join the Leawood Arts Council for our 14th annual free Sundays in the Park Concert Series in the Ironwoods Park Amphitheater. Some seating is available however, we recommend bringing a blanket and/or lawn chairs. Picnics are welcomed, but alcohol is not allowed within the park.

The concert series continues on September 2nd with the classic sounds of Hard @ Play.
