“A Bat and Three Bears” featuring Annie Ellicott, will perform from 7 to 9 p.m. July 14, on the Museum grounds, 3218 Gladstone Blvd., Kansas City.

Ms. Ellicott spins the great American song book into new gold with this all star cast: Mark Southerland, saxophone and horn sculptures; Jeff Harshbarger, bass; and John Kizilarmut, drums. Beautiful standards woven together with free jazz reveries, Annie and friends will show their mastery of both song and sound.

Bring your blankets, lawn chairs and a picnic and enjoy an evening of music. Dogs are allowed in a designated area. For more information, visit kansascitymuseum.org.
