The nonprofit Liberty Symphony Orchestra has dedicated 40 seasons to string-laden aural enrichment, staging the world's greatest compositions using the formidable talents of professional and amateur local musicians. Guest baton-wielder Dr. Phil Posey conducts the closing concert of the 2010-11 season, enlivening ears with Samuel Barber's cathartic Adagio for Strings before prompting a theater-wide round of air-bowing with Beethoven's rousing and beloved Symphony no. 9. Mouth along with the William Jewell College choir and North Kansas City High School A Capella Choir as they join the merry band of melody-makers for the symphony's memorable "Ode to Joy" before reenacting back-bending brass solos over a bevy of treats at a complimentary dessert reception. The LSO's ensemble takes the stage at the state-of-the-art, 725-seat Liberty Performing Arts Theatre, home to local plays, fitness competitions, and tuxedo-clad turtle races.
Formed by a group of young professionals who wanted to leave a positive mark on their city, SocialHeart raises funds and awareness for Kansas City’s local nonprofit organizations. After two years of careful event planning and volunteering, the group held its first events in 2012, each based on its belief that raising money for a good cause should be fun. To that end, the team coordinates elaborate events throughout the year, such as themed costume parties, date auctions, pub crawls, and brewery tours—all of which benefit local nonprofit groups and clowns looking to socialize without being recognized. SocialHeart also provides social media, marketing support, graphic design, and website or technical support for organizations’ events, as well as organized volunteers for nonprofit events if needed.
