Symphony Begins Kohlenberg Lyceum Series

The Kansas City Symphony will perform at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 29 in Baldwin Hall Auditorium.
The Symphony, founded by R. Crosby Kemper, Jr. in 1982, plays a 42-week season. KCS performs a wide variety of subscription, educational, touring and outreach concerts. In addition, the symphony performs with the Lyric Opera of Kansas City and the Kansas City Ballet.

Steven Jarvi

Steven Jarvi, who the Wall Street Journal describes as “eloquent and decisive,” leads the group’s 80 full-time musicians. Jarvi has become recognized as an extraordinary talent with an equal passion for the concert hall and the opera house. Jarvi received the KCS Assistant Conductor position in Fall 2008 after completing two seasons as Conducting Fellow with the New World Symphony in Miami Beach and as an Associate Conductor for the New York City Opera at Lincoln Center. Jarvi was recently named Bruno Walter Associate Conductor Chair for the 2009-2010 season, one of only three awards given nationwide for the concert year. His responsibilities include leading the Pops and Family Series concerts and serving as the cover conductor for the Classical Series.
