Local Listen: Kantorei Of Kansas City

Since 2009 Kantorei of Kansas City has been accentuating the region's reputation as a hotbed of superior classical vocal ensembles.  Kantorei of Kansas City's latest album,“Music and Sweet Poetry, Choral Music by Matthew Harris,” was released by the British record label Resonus Classics on Valentine's Day.  In this edition of Local Listen, we enjoy "Fantasy on La Bamba," a gorgeous but decidedly lighthearted arrangement of the 1958 Ritchie Valens hit "La Bamba".

Hear more: Kantorei of Kansas City performs at Visitation Catholic Church, 5141 Main Street, at 7:30 p.m. on May 31.

As senior producer of Up To Date, I want our listeners to hear familiar and new voices that shine light on the issues and challenges facing the myriad communities KCUR serves, and to expose our audiences to the wonderful and the creative in the Kansas City area. Just as important to me is an obligation to mentor the next generation of producers to ensure that the important conversations continue. Reach me at alexanderdk@kcur.org.
