The Kansas City Symphony is pleased to present educational programs serving young people throughout the Greater Kansas City area.
This season, the Kansas City Symphony will present a series of three educational concerts for elementary students. Recognizing the enthusiasm for more cross-curricular programming, two of these programs, Uncle Sam’s Symphony and Symphonic Citizenship, will highlight the relationships between social studies and music. We are also thrilled to bring back Carnegie Hall’s incredibly popular recorder-based program Link Up: The Orchestra Rocks. This exciting program is the third in Carnegie Hall’s series of three Link Up concerts and is sure to sell out! Each of these series is eligible for the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts Open Doors Transportation Fund. This fund may provide bus allowances for up to 100% of your transportation costs to the Kansas City Symphony’s Young People’s, KinderKonzert, and Link Up programs.
Middle school, high school and college students are invited to join us for a number of different programs including open dress rehearsals, master classes, performance competitions, and more. This season’s highlights include master classes with Leon Fleisher, André Watts, PROJECT Trio and Michael Stern, two days of TubaChristmas and an open dress rehearsal featuring renowned violinist Joshua Bell.
