During this challenging time, the Symphony is asking patrons to consider donating the value of their tickets to the Symphony to help sustain the organization through this crisis. Alternatively, ticket holders may call the Symphony Box Office at (816) 471-0400 to exchange their concert tickets for credit to be used toward a future concert.
Symphony Executive Director Danny Beckley says the Symphony’s musicians still want to provide music to the community in whatever ways they can.
“Music is such an important part of life, most especially during a trying time like this,” Beckley says. “We will be rolling out a series of initiatives in the coming weeks to share music and other great digital content with our community in the safety and comfort of their homes. Please stay tuned and check back on social media for what we have in store. We deeply appreciate and value the community’s support of the Kansas City Symphony and its mission in the region.”
