KCCO News and Updates
Welcome to the KCCO quarterly newsletter! We created the newsletter to give our subscribers a broader overview of our concert seasons, introduce you to members of the orchestra, and share information about additional KCCO activities. We hope you enjoy it!

If you would prefer not to receive the newsletter but would still like to get our concert announcements, please send us a note . To unsubscribe from all KCCO communications you can use the link at the bottom of this email.


We kicked off this season with "Red October." Our November concert, "Musical Menagerie," featured Bryan Busby and was preceded by our Instrument Petting Zoo. (Read the KC Metropolis review here.) We closed out 2016 with the annual "Sounds of the Season" concert. (Read the review). 

Our next concert will take place on April 29 and will feature the winner of our Young Artist Concerto Competition.
Musician Spotlight

Mark Lauer is a graduate of the UMKC Conservatory of Music and Dance and is currently pursuing a Performer's Certificate. He is KCCO's  principal bassoonist but also plays in other area orchestras, is a scholarship winner, and is expecting to release his first album later this year. 

Outreach Activities

In addition to free concerts, KCCO also offers community  outreach programs. In November we held our third annual Instrument Petting Zoo, where children can handle and play various instruments. Throughout the season our musicians visit schools, community centers, and assisted living facilities where they give educational presentations and performances. 

KCCO on the Radio!

KCCO Board President Marcia Barber and Outreach Coordinator Don Goldenbaum were recently featured on the KC Cares radio program.  

Get Involved

KCCO is able to offer free concerts and outreach activities thanks to generous support from our members and supporters. We are an all-volunteer organization, and the more volunteers we have, the more we can do! Whether you're a music-lover who wants to give something back or a student looking to add experience to your resume, there are a number of ways you can contribute. 

If you would like to get more involved with KCCO, or just want to learn more about the opportunities available, get in touch!
