Symphonic First Friday At The Kauffman

It was a symphonic First Friday at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts Sept. 6.

The Kansas City Symphony kicked off their Happy Hour, a monthly, free concert. During Happy Hour, the musicians perform a wonderful one-hour program of chamber music that will energize you for your evening gallery stroll.

This month, attendees enjoyed movements from Beethoven’s Serenade in D Major, and Brahms’ Trio for Violin, Horn and Piano.

Anthony DeMarco (violin),
Kristin Velicer (violin),
Jessica Nance (viola),
Alexander East (cello),
David Sullivan (horn) and
Dan Velicer (piano) gave an amazing performance of the classics.

Music lovers young an old – yes, even a baby was in attendance – packed the seats in Helzberg Hall.

The next Happy Hour is Wednesday Oct. 16. The program includes Schubert’s String Quartet No. 12, “Quartettsatz,” plus Mozart’s Horn Quintet and Clarinet Quintet. Bars open at 5 p.m., with a one-hour casual concert in Helzberg Hall beginning at 6 p.m.

While the tickets are free, you must reserve your spot. You can do that here:
