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.

Pre-Concert Talk 6:30 PM
Handel’s famous “Water Music” contains some of the most familiar tunes ever penned by one of history’s greatest composers. Featured on this concert is the Suite No. 1 in D Major with trumpets, oboes, and horns. Haydn is perhaps the most important composer of the “Classical” era, and his 104 symphonies are a treasure trove and make it difficult to choose from so many. Symphony No. 60 is an absolute delight! Forrest Pierce has written a new concerto for oboe d’amore titled “A Siege of Herons” and it will be our second world premiere this season, featuring Margaret Marco as soloist. Marco’s playing is the inspiration for this new work. The KCCO premiered Pierce’s “Twelve Kisses” in 2010 - it is a terrific work and was greeted with a standing ovation at its premiere. Don’t miss this exciting new premiere!
