Classical AdventuresEducation Outreach Program
We are pleased to present our thirteenth season of Educational Outreach Programs? These events are designed to serve our community by providing FREE professional orchestral concerts to area students in grades three through nine. High school students studying or interested in music are most welcome to participate.
The future is seen through the eyes of our youth, and we at the Kansas City Chamber Orchestra believe in encouraging music education and promoting music, both as a means of personal expression and of gaining insight into the experiences of people of other times and places. The arts are fundamental to education and to human development. They open new doors of opportunities and expose one to the full range of possibilities in life.
The fifty-minute programs are patterned after Leonard Bernstein's epic Young People's Concerts performed with the New York Philharmonic. Maestro Sorrell talks with the students about the music - what to listen for, featured instruments, and interesting anecdotes. After the selections are played students have the opportunity to ask questions.

Grace and Holy Trinity Chapel
Vivaldi’s Gloria is one of the most loved settings of the famous song of the herald angels from the nativity story. The music is grand, reverent, expressive, capturing the excitement and awe of the famous text. Corelli’s “Christmas” Concerto sets the scene with its famous pastoral close, drawing the listener into the fields, the pasture, where the famous announcement took place. The concert will feature two other Baroque gems, Vivaldi’s “Il Gardellino” (Goldfinch) Concerto for flute, one of his most famous, and the incomparable Brandenburg Concerto No. 1 (1st version) by Bach.
