Lauren ZollerClassical KC Intern
Originally from Wichita, Kansas, I’m an incoming junior at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. I’m pursuing a BBA emphasizing non-profit management with minors in Spanish and communication studies. Prior to moving to Kansas City, I was an intern for KMUW Wichita Public Radio working in archives and was a member of the Wichita Symphony Youth Orchestras. I keep up my cello playing through lessons, gigs, and jam sessions with friends. I also enjoy volunteering and reading.
July 20 is National Moon Day, commemorating the day astronaut Neil Armstrong landed on the moon. Many composers have written about the moon and connect themes of love, nature and the soul to this celestial body. Explore those themes through these classical selections.
July 14th is Bastille Day, the national day of France. It marks the fall of the Bastille prison during the French Revolution, which was a turning point in the war. Celebrate by exploring the music of the Revolution and check these French tunes out.
