Jazz up your winter with music-themed 50 Plus day trip on Jan. 31
POSTED: 01/09/2012
Participants will start with a visit to KC Strings, the only American makers of professional grade violins, violas, cellos, and basses. Learn how expert craftsmen create quality instruments for string players all over the world. The trip will continue on to the Majestic Restaurant, which was built in 1911 and known for its speakeasy and evening jazz performances. Then feel the music at the American Jazz Museum in the legendary 18th and Vine District. A guided tour and interactive exhibits will bring the spirit of jazz and its notable musicians to life. Perform a catalog search for the keyword "day trip" to find this program in the JCPRD's Activities catalog and online listings.

This trip will leave at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 31, from Antioch Park 6501 Antioch, Merriam, and return at approximately 4 p.m. that day. The cost for one six and one-half hour trip is $69 per person and includes lunch.

While the JCPRD's 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the District's Registration Department at (913) 831-3359, and if space is available without forfeiting the place of a person over 50, their registration can be taken.

The JCPRD's Activities catalog, with information and a registration form, is available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359. To register online and for updated program listings, visit the District's website at
