In the two weeks leading up to the much anticipated opening of the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts during the weekend of September 16–18, a few classical music organizations are dipping their toes into the water before taking the full plunge in to their fall seasons. The Kansas City Symphony is leading the way with its free Labor Day concert at Shawnee Mission Park featuring pops classics under the direction of associate conductor Steven Jarvi. The tenth anniversary of the horrific events of September 11 leads to two memorial concerts, one on September 10 by newEar and the second on the following night at the Community Christian Church featuring René Clausen’s choral work Memorial. The Lied Center of the University of Kansas features a concert by one of KU’s talented faculty members, Steven Spooner, kicking off the year-long celebrations of the 200th birthday of Franz Liszt. Watch this column throughout the year for other organizations participating in similar observances.
