The Crystal (15th) Season continues for the Lee’s Summit Symphony, as they prepare for the March 10th concert at the Performing Arts Center, Lee’s Summit High School at 7:00 p.m. The concert theme is “Watercolor Reflections: Wonders of Nature” and musical selections include the world premiere of Curtain in the Sky by Langenfeld, as well as Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6 and Smetana’s Moldau. A pre-concert discussion at 6:00 by Dr. Carrie Turner will help listeners prepare for the concert experience.
Tickets are available online (lssymphony.org) or at LS Cosentino’s Price Chopper stores and either LS Hy-Vee store for $15, or $7 for students. Pupils in grades 4-6 are admitted free with a paid adult.
A second important event will be “Symphony of Chocolate” on April 29th at the Emaline Ballroom from 2:00-4:00. The orchestra is in need of percussion instruments, so this event is a fundraiser for that specific purpose. Attendees will enjoy selections of chocolate desserts and music by orchestra members. As event chair Barb Prestage said, “Who doesn’t love good music and chocolate?”
The season will conclude with the annual family pops concert on May 5, this year appropriately titled “Cinco de Symphony: Celebrating Cultures.”
The mission of the Lee’s Summit Symphony is to enhance the local cultural experience by providing high-quality, accessible live performances that inspire, educate and entertain. Experience the sound!
