The Kansas City Symphony presents a unique program valuable not only to participating school districts, but to communities as well.  The mission of the program includes the following: 

1.  To bring community focus to the value and importance of school music programs.

2.  To provide schools the opportunity to raise funds specifically for the district’s music department through concert ticket sales.

3.  To expose students and communities to the Kansas City Symphony who would not likely be afforded this experience. 

The Kansas City Symphony takes residency in your school district for 1-2 days, rehearsing as an ensemble, meeting with students in small group breakout sessions, and performing an open rehearsal for students, all of which culminates with an evening performance. There is no charge to the school or district for this program.

If you are interested in learning how to bring this unique program to your school district,
please contact Stephanie Brimhall at sbrimhall@kcsymphony.org or (816) 219-2639
to receive an information packet.
