Posted on: May 27, 2016

“There’s no better proof that Kansas City is one of America’s most vibrant, exciting cities than the Symphony’s Celebration at the Station” held Sunday, May 29 at Union Station, writes Patrick Neas in Friday’s (5/27) Kansas City Star (Missouri). “The popular annual event at Union Station overflows with people, music, food and fun. The evening concert by the Symphony, is, of course, the main attraction, but a full day of events featuring fantastic local talent precedes the concert. This year, Kansas City favorites Victor & Penny [jazz duo] will perform from 3 to 4 p.m., the United States Air Force Band from 4:30 to 5 p.m. and the A la Mode swing band from 5:45 to 6:45 p.m. Food trucks will be available, and the city’s new streetcars will be running until 11 p.m. The Symphony will cap things off at 8 p.m. with a concert conducted by Aram Demirjian. The orchestra will be joined by saxophonist Bobby Watson and vocalist Kevin Mahogany for patriotic fare, popular classics and, to accompany the grand finale fireworks display, the 1812 Overture.”
