LAWRENCE – Kansas Public Radio was set to hold its 12th annual Big Band Christmas on Dec. 12 at Liberty Hall, but due to concerns surrounding COVID-19, KPR has decided to cancel this year’s event.
Big Band Christmas traditionally draws more than 500 people to enjoy a night of live jazz music, drinks and dancing. KPR plans to bring Big Band Christmas back in December 2021.
