Kansas City Wind Symphony – November 6 at Kauffman Center

helzberg-posterIn September 2011, the KCWS was selected to perform at the grand opening of the Kauffman Center. In 2013, they returned, presenting their 15th Anniversary Gala “Classical Meets Jazz” with Kansas City jazz great Bobby Watson.

The KCWS is coming back on Sunday, November 6 at 4:00 PM for a joint concert they are calling ‘And Thou, America’ with guest choirs from Village Church and area high schools.

The unabashedly patriotic theme of the concert, which will take place only two days before Election Day, is intended to send the listener to the voting booth with the beauty and grandeur of American music still echoing in their ear. The concert will begin with the stirring ‘Fanfare for the Common Man’ by Aaron Copland and will feature magnificent renditions of ‘American Overture’ (Jenkins), ‘Slava’ (Bernstein), ‘Song of Democracy’ (Hanson) and ‘An Ellington Portrait’ (Ellington/Werle) among many others.

Get your FREE tickets by calling the Kauffman ticket office (816-994-7200).

The Kansas City Wind Symphony is sponsored by the Music Department of Village Presbyterian Church in Prairie Village, Kansas.
