Kansas City Zoo

March 31, 8PM

People often think contemporary Classical music sounds like a babbling bunch of baboons. Sometimes that’s actually on purpose. For our third concert of our 25th anniversary season, we’ve curated a set of works that incorporate animal sounds, themes, and ideas into the music. Sheep, cats, mice, and more infiltrate this program of new chamber works.

The concert will be held at Kansas City Zoo’s polar bear passage.
