Mozart and Haydn
April on the Plaza features elegant melodies of Mozart and the elegance, drama, and wit of Haydn make for an unparalleled concert experience for a spring evening.
- Mozart: the richly textured Sinfonia Concertante, which balances the absence of clarinet, flute, and percussion with a split viola section; Symphony No. 33, a four-movement piece known for its sparse instrumentation
- Haydn: Symphony No. 83, or “La Poule,” gets its nickname from the short rhythmic bursts that conjure the jerky motions of a hen.
- Highlights: Maestro Bruce Sorrell helms a pre-concert discussion about the orchestra and the evening’s subjects
Kansas City Chamber Orchestra
Most orchestras have 80–100 members, but a true chamber orchestra is smaller. The 10–33 instrumentalists that take the stage at the KCCO's concerts harken back to the small-ensemble, pretzel-stick-baton days of Bach, Mozart, Handel, and Vivaldi. The orchestra pays further tribute to these artists by regularly performing their works in addition to more unconventional programs: they've collaborated with artists as diverse as Paul Mesner Puppets, Owen/Cox Dance, and the Kansas City Chorale. Led by Music Director/Conductor Bruce Sorrell, KCCO is celebrating its 28th season of concerts.
