The second annual Rising Symphony Stars event sponsored by the Kansas City Symphony Alliance (KCSA) will be held on Sunday, October 18. As was the case with last year’s extremely successful debut of this event, the evening will feature a full course dinner at the Marriott Country Club Plaza hotel, along with interspersed performances by some of the outstanding young musicians who have been finalists in the Kansas City Symphony’s Young Artist Competition.
The evening will open with a social hour at 5:00 p.m., followed by a dinner at 6:15 p.m. in which the courses will be interspersed with performances from the talented young musicians and, in some cases, their instructors as well. Dress is cocktail attire, and complimentary parking is available in the Marriott Hotel Garage, along with a discounted rate for valet parking.
At last year’s inaugural Rising Symphony Stars event, over 140 people attended and enjoyed outstanding string and piano performances, along with a delicious dinner.
The chair of Rising Symphony Stars this year is Patty Bibler, assisted by committee members Judy Barackman, Sylvia Brush, Don Dagenais, Linda Hartman, Tracey Hawkins, Laura Heinlein, Barbara Holzmark, Karen Hodson, Helen Miller and Marilyn Raines. Patty and her committee have been hard at work for several months already, to try to make the second Rising Symphony Stars concert a success. Here are a few photos from last year’s event. You should have received your invitation in the mail or at one of our member meetings, but if not, full information is available from our web site:
