ruman music faculty members and a recent alumnus joined the Kansas City Symphony in February for a series of performances of Igor Stravinsky’s masterpiece, “The Rite of Spring.”

The University’s tuba professor, Steven Seward, is the Kansas City Symphony’s principal tubist.

He was joined by fellow Truman faculty Gregory Jones, trumpet, and Jay Bulen, trombone.

Kevin Harrison, a recent graduate of the Truman music program, also performed during these concerts under the direction of maestro Michael Stern.

Each performance was met with standing ovations and many Truman alumni were in attendance to see their former instructors perform.

Truman is well connected to the Kansas City classical music scene, as four Truman music graduates, Leigh Smith, Brad Fowler, Carol Carlson and Michael Harris work in the administration of the Kansas City Symphony as well.
