Event description

Description

5:00 p.m. cash bar, 6:00 p.m. program | Jazz flutist, educator, band director, and vocalist Amber Underwood is a native of Kansas City and has been entertaining and performing music since the age of 8. Her musical journey began on the piano and soon after she started playing classical flute. While in college, Wood discovered Jazz and became intrigued with the art form inspired by musical influences like Bobbi Humphrey, Hubert Laws, Frank Wess, Herbie Mann, and Nestor Torres and found a love for the art form.

Amber Wood graduated from Wichita State University at the age of 20 with a Bachelor of Music in Flute Performance, and by 23 she completed a Master of Arts in Arts Administration and Music Business from the University of Missouri–Kansas City Conservatory. She earned a second Master’s degree in Education and Teaching Music from Pittsburgh State University.

In 2014 the Amber Underwood Project was formed with the mission to showcase the rich tones of the flute with a modern and fresh take on smooth jazz and R&B sounds. Wood lives and works in Kansas City.
