The Lee’s Summit Symphony performed before a sell-out crowd at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts June 15.
Presented through the exclusive sponsorship of Saint Luke’s Hospital Lee’s Summit, the event celebrated the orchestra’s 10th anniversary.
Close to 1,500 fans attended the concert, which included pieces from the Symphony’s past 10 years as well as a new composition created by orchestra oboist Karl Hayes.
Approximately 200 Symphony fans traveled to the special concert via motor coach buses which picked up riders up at Lee’s Summit High School and dropped them at the Kauffman Center, returning the bus riders to LSHS after the concert ended.
The Lee’s Summit Symphony’s first concert was in October 2003. The orchestra was the dream of its two founders – retired music educator Russell Berlin Jr. and the late Phyllis Hamilton.
The Lee’s Summit Symphony’s next performance will be the evening of July 3 as part of Booms and Blooms, held annually at Powell Gardens in Kingsville, Mo.
