Dancing with the Kansas City Symphony

Eric T. Williams
Guest conductor Carlos Miguel Prieto takes a bow with members of the Kansas City Symphony.

With an affectionate nod to the Kansas City Ballet, this week co-hosts Michael Stern and Dan Margolies showcase three works linked to dance. We'll hear live performances of John Adams' "The Chairman Dances," a suite from Prokofiev's "Romeo and Juliet" and Tchaikovsky's Orchestral Suite No. 3.

An agreement with the Kansas City Symphony allows us to share audio for this program up to four weeks after the program's original air date. You can listen to currently available episodes here.
