Celebration at the Kauffman Center

Upcoming Events

FALL CLASSIC CONCERT - OCTOBER 18, 2014

Join the Lee's Summit Symphony for the Fall Classic concert on October 18, 2014. This concert begins at 7:30 pm with a pre-concert lecture by Dr. Les Brothers in the Lecture Hall at 6:30 p.m.

The Fall Classic concert will feature a variety of musical styles from different historical periods. The concert will open with Mozart’s Symphony No. 25 composed in 1773 when he only 17 years old. Many people will recognize the opening movement if they have seen the movie Amadeus (1984). Set in the key of G minor, it definitely has a Halloween”ish” feel. The second half of the concert will open with Leonard Bernstein’s popular Overture to Candide (1957). It will be followed by another well-known piece, Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings (1938), which was used in the score for the movie Platoon. Giuseppi Verdi’s Nabucco Overture (1842) is next on the program. This opera in 4 acts was one of Verdi’s most famous based on biblical text. The final piece is Three Dances from the Gayane Ballet (1941-42) by Aram Khachaturian, with the exciting Sabre Dance as the finale.
