More Summer fun…
For Kansas City the Plaza Art Fair is the right of passage of summer to fall.
The Plaza Art Fair encompasses nine city blocks and welcomes a crowd of over 250,000.
Featuring 240 artists, the Plaza Art Fair is atop-ranked, national art event with three live music stages and over 23 featured restaurant booths.
The Plaza Art Fair is 84 years old and a wonderful Kansas City institution!
The Kansas City Symphony kicked off another great year with a rousing rendition of the Star Spangled Banner! I loved it!!
And apparently I was not alone…from the Kansas City Star:
“Last weekend, the orchestra began its fifth season in the Kauffman Center’s Helzberg Hall, kicking off its action-packed year with another “Star-Spangled Banner” and vigorous helpings of European concert music, including Maurice Ravel’s mesmerizing Bolero.
The Symphony has been filling the hall with regularity. Its main classical series, pops concerts, family shows and series of happy-hour events aimed at attracting new listeners have contributed to unprecedented levels of ticket sales and revenue. A recent disc release — its sixth CD project for the audiophile Reference Recordings label — featured the music of French composer Camille Saint-Saëns. Significantly, the record also showed off the talents of Jan Kraybill, caretaker of the Kauffman Center’s huge Casavant organ, and two Symphony principals, violinist Noah Geller and cellist Mark Gibbs.
Geller and Gibbs also played major roles in last weekend’s season opener. The program’s focus on featured soloists from the Symphony’s top ranks represented an important reminder that this band is rich in individual talent even as it swoons and swells like a unified force under Stern’s direction.”
Looking forward to another great season with the Kansas City Symphony!
Fun dessert at Cafe Sebastian at Kemper Museum Kansas City Missouri
One of Kansas City’s premier restaurants, Café Sebastienne combines the worlds of contemporary art and contemporary cuisine in the heart of the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art. A must is the reuben sandwich…guaranteed to be one of the best ever tasted. But the desserts are incredible also.
The restaurant is in the Kemper Museum in Kansas City Missouri.
