In 2018 the Kansas City Symphony Alliance added a third fund raising project to its repertoire, the KCSA Trips Program which sponsors trips to international locations to help raise money for the Symphony. The inaugural trip of the KCSA Trips program was to Vienna and Salzburg, Austria, where the group attended a number of outstanding music performances including concerts by both the Vienna Philharmonic and the Berlin Philharmonic, along with recitals, a full length ballet, and an opera.

In 2019, the KCSA Trips Program is hosting a trip to Paris. This will include a number of outstanding music performances as well as tours of several leading museums including the Louvre and the Musee D’Orsay, a side trip to Giverny, the longtime home of the painter Claude Monet, and many other adventures.
