  • "Million Dollar Quartet"
    Iconic performer Peter Gabriel?s tranquil voice and hypnotic melodies envelop audiences with a cartulary of soul-mollifying songs during his New Blood tour. Each song flows as smoothly as butter skates on a griddle as Peter takes a radical approach to his beloved catalog and reinvents other songwriters? nuggets in his latest record, Scratch My Back. No drums, guitar, or pyrotechnic fog horns, Peter relies solely on the combination of his voice and his New Blood Orchestra to fill the air of the breezy outdoor Starlight Theatre with mesmerizing consonance.

  • 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.

  • The Living Room
    Shawnna Journagan and Rusty Sneary founded The Living Room to bring theater to audiences in the friendliest, most accessible way possible. Shows range from old B movies adapted into musical comedies to performances that confront serious issues such as mental illness. The venue keeps evenings casual, peddling popcorn, sodas, and cocktails in the lobby to fuel enjoyment of the performance and postperformance applause to the tune of Flight of the Bumblebee. In addition to plays, the stage also hosts live bands for evenings of entertainment, many of whom are friends with the owners.

  • The Kansas City Symphony
    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 Fran?ois 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.
