Every June the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts holds the Future Stages Festival, and this year the free event is going to be a virtual experience with online activities, games and videos that the whole family can enjoy. This annual community event puts a spotlight on local youth performers.

Several Symphony musicians will be featured and take part in the fun through videos and a live Q&A session. The online event starts at 11 a.m. on Sunday, June 14.
