From KC To The Kennedy Center


The Kansas City Friends of Alvin Ailey have some friends outside of the area-- including the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts' president, Michael Kaiser.

In the second part of Friday's Up to Date, Kaiser talks with Steve Kraske about how he got his start here in town, what he's doing to help the Kansas City Friends of Alvin Ailey, and the state of performing arts in our nation.
