The Kansas City Symphony is pleased to present educational programs serving young people throughout the Greater Kansas City area.
The Kansas City Symphony is excited to present the John and Marny Sherman Education Series which includes Young People's, KinderKonzert and Link Up performances for elementary students. Recognizing the enthusiasm for more cross-curricular programming, two of these programs, Play Me a Story and The Remarkable Farkle McBride, will highlight the relationships between music and English/Language arts. We are also thrilled to bring back Carnegie Hall’s incredibly popular recorder-based program Link Up: The Orchestra Sings. Young People's, KinderKonzert and Link Up performances are 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 Midori, Jeremy Denk and the symphony's own Jeffrey Kail and Albert Suarez. We are also excited to present two days of TubaChristmas and a number of open dress rehearsals!
