Senior Editor Victor Wishna spoke with Kimmi about her role as an arts pioneer, the expanding reach and nature of Fringe, and the spectacles and surprises that await in the next couple weeks, including something called “tweet rain.”

The July music calendar begins with the always-popular Fourth of July concert of patriotic works (and fireworks, too) by the Lee’s Summit Symphony at Powell Gardens. The real focus of the month, however, will be on the first three of four Summerfest concerts (the fourth is in August) featuring some of Kansas City’s finest musicians from the Kansas City Symphony and elsewhere, playing elegant concerts of chamber music in two locations each weekend beginning July 12. For works at the other end of the spectrum, try some of the less traditional music and dance performances at the Fringe Festival from July 17 to 27. The month wraps up with the inaugural concert of the Summer Singers of Lee’s Summit and Chamber Orchestra and a performance by the Midwest Chamber Ensemble.
