Kansas City has had the pleasure of an amazing Symphony, Arts District and renowned photography in their Galleries and Art Walks. Musicals fill the air in the summer time at the Shawnee Mission Theater in the Park, Starlight Theater, The Playhouse, Shakespeare Festival and Renaissance Festival. We all enjoy trips to the Big Apple yet Kansas City's entertaining talent is now said to be matched as strongly as the talent in New York City. Local organizations are collaborating to platform these talents with international exposure. There are a variety of classes offered throughout the metro for photography, drawing, painting and ceramics. Most offer individual and group sessions and also encourage bringing guests.
The new Kauffman Performing Arts Center, located on 16th and Broadway and The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art (1933) galleries and exhibits are known around the globe and are attracting many famous composers, producers and musicians to the area. Keeping up with the latest events and visitors can be an overwhelming experience while The Kansas City Ballet (1957) just held a groundbreaking ceremony for the new Bolender Center in November of 2012. All are immaculate examples of the astonishing talent that surrounds the Kansas City area. The Nelson is ranked among the ten largest in the United States and sits on 10 acres of land (while offering free admission). All three are providing memberships, events and opportunities for tourists and local residents to enjoy at affordable rates. The Bolender Center is offering free adult fitness classes.
The Kansas City Repertory Theater (1964) hosts 'A Christmas Carol' every year and continues to be advised by community leaders that have been committed for over ten years. The Sprint Center opened in October of 2007 and will host the 75th Annual NCAA Big 12 Basketball Tournament this year. It is now piloting the Grammy's Museum Music Revolution Project that returned this year to support American music. The program allows peers to compete, with the support of parents and educators, while sharing music talent and ideas. It hosts concerts and Disney on Ice for all age groups to enjoy (while being ranked in the top 10 most attended).
Local businesses continually host bands and charitable events giving Kansas City's climate enticing flair. If you have missed the series of recent events, check out the latest issue of Ink Magazine (vol. 5 issue 45) and enjoy an evening out~ Thank you to all of our passionate Founders, Board Members, Trustees, visionaries and attendees who make this spirit soar. We look forward to more events, the opportunity to host more international talent and support the local arts. Thumbs up to Kansas City for encouraging this growth for not only a national, but international, level of competition.
See you in the Arts District! Namaste',
