Classical Music Buzz > RSS (2.0) Feed > Music and Dance through mid-March
During the first two weeks of March almost all of Kansas City’s classical music organizations are in full swing. The Kansas City Symphony brings us guest conductor Christoph von Dohnanyi in a performance of Tchaikovsky, Strauss and Schnittke. Russian music is also featured by the Tschaikowski (that’s the way they spell it) St. Petersburg State Orchestra, appearing at Yardley Hall. The Lyric Opera presents its third production in the Muriel Kauffman Theatre, John Adams’ contemporary classic “Nixon in China,” which should test the theater’s technical capacity to the limit. Brilliant pianists Richard Goode (Friends of Chamber Music) and Murray Perahia (Harriman Jewell Series) grace the Folly Theater, while the Kansas City Chorale presents favorites from its thirty-year history. Vocal music aficionados can also enjoy the fine eight-voice ensemble Octarium in performances of works by local composers, as well as Ernest Bloch’s’ unusual Sacred Service by the William Baker Festival Singers. In addition, the UMKC Conservatory of Music and Dance previews its upcoming appearance in New York City, and a number of our fine community orchestras present their spring concerts. Get out your calendar and prepare to make some tough choices!
