KANSAS CITY, Mo. | April 5, 2022 — The Kansas City Symphony is excited to announce the return of Bank of
America Celebration at the Station. The Symphony’s free concert event takes place Sunday, May 29, 2022 on
the grounds of Union Station Kansas City and the National World War I Museum and Memorial – both near
Pershing Road and Main Street, just south of Downtown Kansas City, Mo. The event returns after a two-year
hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The event site will open at 5 p.m. and includes food trucks, live pre-concert entertainment on the main stage,
plus various vendors and booths in the Honeywell Veterans Place. A patriotic concert presented by the Kansas
City Symphony and conducted by Music Director Michael Stern begins at 8 p.m. followed by Kansas City’s
largest fireworks display, sponsored by Humana.
Highlights of the 2022 Bank of America Celebration at the Station concert event include:
• A theme of unity that reflects one of America’s defining characteristics – the ability to come together
during and after times of struggle and to collectively honor those who have served.
• This year’s performance will feature Kansas City’s own Oleta Adams, singing some of her best-known
hits and patriotic favorites.
• The Kansas City Symphony is privileged to again partner with Union Station and the National WWI
Museum and Memorial, who each will have their own Memorial Day Weekend activities and special
exhibitions within their venues.
The Symphony’s Executive Director Danny Beckley talks about the significant return of Bank of America
Celebration at the Station. “We are overjoyed to bring Kansas City’s favorite event back for 2022. After what
we have all endured over these years, it will be incredibly meaningful to gather together to celebrate our
country and honor those who have given their all for it.”
Parking for the event is available in multiple surface lots and garages around the event site, including Union
Station’s West Yards garage. Attendees may also park anywhere along Downtown KC’s streetcar route and
ride the streetcar directly to Union Station.
We thank Kansas City PBS for once again broadcasting the concert live on KCPT Channel 19.1, and rebroadcasting the concert many times afterward.
