Our Kansas City Symphony Alliance history indicates a strong tradition of events which have supported the Kansas City Symphony and enriched the awareness of symphonic music in our community. We can learn specific lessons from our history which helps us evaluate and make strong plans to continue our outreach.
Recently during my trip to the League of American Orchestra Conference representing KCSA, I was inspired and challenged to find renewal of purpose for our auxiliary. We have the opportunity to experience collective ownership of our traditions, blend ideas, and refresh our focus.
In order to accomplish these goals, we encourage our KCSA members to review their responsibilities and privileges which constitute membership. This review is an opportunity to stimulate a new resolve for members to become more connected. A strong connection with each other will foster stronger trust and renewed inspiration to carry out our purpose of supporting our symphony.
Thanks for trusting me to work together with our KCSA Board of Directors as we carry leadership responsibilities for the year ahead. I will do my best to join hands with all members of our auxiliary in an effort to move forward together. Let’s remember our KCSA mission to be effective supporters of our Kansas City Symphony as they enrich our community through the performing arts.
Let’s have a great year in KCSA!
