Six Dances And Expanded Sounds

Composer Ulysses Kay - Tuscon Citizen

This week we feature the Kansas City Symphony's return to Helzberg Hall after a year away. We'll hear performances of music by Ulysses Kay, Shostakovich, Beethoven and Tchaikovsky. We'll also find out what it's like for the Maestro and the musicians to perform in front of cameras instead of an audience.
