A Message From the KCSA President

Dear KCSA members,

Your KCSA board members have been working hard to prepare for the 2021-22 Kansas City Symphony year.

As you know, the Symphony has announced a full schedule of in-person performances at the Kauffman Center. You know what that means: our Symphony Shop will be open! And that means that we need volunteers to staff many shifts at the Symphony Shop both at the classical series concerts and at a number of pops concerts and special concerts such as movie nights.

Please take a look at the schedule on Volunteer Matters and sign up for as many shifts as you can.  This is a “fun” way to fulfill your volunteer hours commitment for KCSA, and it will get you out of the house and in the company of friends. No heavy lifting required!

If you can’t remember how to access Volunteer Matters or if you have any problems, just reach out to our techno wizard, Nancy Johnson, at nancyjohnson@pobox.com, and she will be happy to help you.

We had a wonderful Rooftop Soiree Under the Stars party on Friday, October 1. We had a great night under the stars on a gorgeous fall evening and greeted many friends, old and new. A string quartet from the Symphony provided some delightful musical selections.

Barbara Berry, our Showhouse chair this year, is busy working with her committee in finding a 52nd Designers Showhouse for next spring. The real estate market is popping right now so this is going to be hard. She and her committee would love to have any leads on an attractive house. Contact her bbatalanta@aol.com.

Please join us for our fall membership meeting on October 25 and for our holiday luncheon on December 11.  More details can be found in other posts on this web site.

We look forward to seeing you at the Symphony concerts and at our upcoming meetings, and betting back to being “normal” as soon as we can.
