Kohlenberg Lyceum Series Begins New Season with the Kansas City Symphony

The 2005-2006 Kohlenberg Lyceum Series will kick off the season with a performance by the Kansas City Symphony at 7:30 p.m., Sept. 13, in Baldwin Auditorium.

Recognized internationally for their artistry and achievements, the musicians of the Kansas City Symphony will perform an exhilarating program of classical masterworks.

Resident Conductor Timothy Hankewich conducts the ensemble the Kansas City Star calls “a truly great orchestra.”

Founded in 1982, the Kansas City Symphony has evolved into a primary force in the cultural life of Kansas City and the region. The orchestra has released two recordings, “American Voices” and “The Sound of Kansas City.” The Kansas City Symphony has also performed on National Public Radio and has taped two nationally broadcast PBS television specials.

Admission is free for students, faculty and staff with their University ID. Students may pick up tickets at the Student Activities Board Office, lower level of the SUB. Faculty and staff may pick up tickets at the Center for Student Involvement, lower level of the SUB.

The Kohlenberg Lyceum Series began in 1899 as a lecture course. The Series aims to broaden the cultural experience of students, faculty, staff and the community through speakers, music and drama. Each year the Series brings a wide selection of attractions to the Truman campus, which includes professional musicians and dance troupes.

The 2005-2006 season features the Shangri-La Chinese Acrobats, the Nebraska Theatre Caravan’s performance of “A Christmas Carol” (tentative), the Montana Repertory Theatre’s production of “The Trip to Bountiful,” the Kansas City Ballet, Rhonda Vincent & The Rage and the Truman Showcase featuring the University Orchestra & University Chorus.
