  • Plaza Branch Kansas City Public Library
    The performance begins with Kansas City Symphony Music Director Michael Stern leading the ensemble through Maurice Ravel's 1919 Le Tombeau de Couperin, a four-movement orchestral homage to baroque composer François Couperin. Next, the evocative melody of Samuel Barber's 1947 lyric rhapsody for orchestra and voice, Knoxville: Summer of 1915, fills the air as Ms. Murphy narrates scenes from author James Agee's dreamlike childhood memoir. After a brief intermission for flutes of champagne and handfuls of de-sloppied sloppy joes (also known as Dapper Dans), Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 4 sneaks into the concert hall with the jingle of two sleigh bells, then erupts into a ghostly scherzo that builds to a solemn march before finally reaching a gentle conclusion with the soprano's bucolic, childlike warbling.

  • Sleepyhead Beds
    Since 2010, Sleepyhead Beds' team of volunteers has collected new or gently used beds and bedding to give to children in need—working with the belief that all children deserve a good night’s sleep. The volunteers pick up donated mattresses, and then transport them to the organization's warehouse for sterilization before delivering the beds to the children. In 2011, Sleepyhead Beds delivered approximately 1,800 beds to Kansas City–area children.
