The UMKC Conservatory will reach a Crescendo next Friday evening, Nov. 2, in Downtown Kansas City.
More than a concert, more than a fundraiser, Crescendo is the story of the UMKC Conservatory of Music and Dance and the power/possibility of a downtown arts campus.
Highlighting the spectacular Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, Crescendo 2012 celebrates the talent and vision of the Conservatory’s students and faculty. In a seamless performance designed to be energetic and eclectic, Crescendo 2012 will be a concert event unlike any other in Kansas City. From jazz to classics, music and dance will fill Helzberg Hall in a performance that reflects the dynamic and ever-changing rhythms and riffs that define the Conservatory.
“On First Friday, Nov. 2, the Conservatory will give a brief, bold energetic 50-minute performance,” Witte said. “The concert will be a blast Quick, and diverse, like our city. 250 students and faculty will take part. It will dazzle.”
Crescendo is set for 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2 in Helzberg Hall. Single tickets cost $27.50, while students tickets are $12.50. All tickets are available here.
“Come hear what The New York Times calls ‘One of the country’s liveliest academies’,” Witte said. “On November 2nd, we will show you why.”
