Musicians, by trade, are lifelong students. It’s a simple fact that respected Kansas City bassist, bandleader, and composer Bill McKemy embraces with every fiber of his being. And as he carefully explains, you always have to be ready for that next lesson — no matter the source or the circumstances. For McKemy, that journey has brought him in contact with an impressive roster of musical mentors, including such renowned players as guitarist John Abercrombie, percussionist/conguero Pablo Batista, saxophonist Ted Nash, trombonist Bill Watrous, and 3-time Grammy Award-winning trumpeter Randy Brecker.

In Kansas City, there is a popular jazz group that has performed every week since their inception in 1991. This would not be so remarkable, as Kansas City is renowned for its tradition of great jazz since the days of Count Basie and Charlie Parker. What is remarkable, is that this group of native Kansas Citians plays nothing but Brazilian jazz, with a flavor and passion one might think could only be found at a night club in Ipanema or Leblon. The Sons of Brasil invite you to sample these sounds, which stem from their love and admiration of “musica bem brasileira.”

Dr. Arthur White, an ANDREAS EASTMAN Jazz and Saxophone Artist, is a nationally recognized composer, arranger, educator, and is enjoying a renaissance as a touring saxophonist. All About Jazz calls White’s ensembles “solidly impressive”, while referring to his “virile tenor solos”, “scorching alto broadsides”, and his ability to “vacate(s) the podium to fashion ‘splendid’ tenor solos…”.

White performs throughout the US, though he keeps his home, and roots firmly planted, in the Midwest with his wife Megan, his son Sam, and his dog Lily. He performs as a full-time member with Kansas City’s iconic Boulevard Big Band, St. Louis’s Dave Dickey Big Band, and MERGE, his original jazz quintet. He is also a frequent collaborator with the Kansas City Jazz Orchestra and the Jim Widner Big Band.

30 May - 24 June

Directed by Ian R. Crawford

The Jerome Stage

When a soldier returns from a war zone in the Middle East to his suburban home, he discovers a household undergoing a total upheaval. His mother has been liberated from an oppressive marriage after his father's stroke, and with the help of his newly out transgender brother, she is passionately dismantling the patriarchy. In Taylor Mac's progressive and absurd comedy, this family may find that even the most radical changes can't always free you from the weight of the past.

[more+]

Combining both Spanish and Haitian-Creole language, Mundo Nouvo ['mun.do-nu.vo] means "New World". This ensemble looks to source its material from the roots of Afro-Caribbean music with special emphasis on Cuban and Haitian traditions. At its fullest, Mundo Nouvo operates as an 11-piece Salsa Orchestra that plays the dance halls for crowds that love the timeless groove of guaracha, merengue, mambo, etc. This band also adapts to smaller formations (3-8 instruments) to play its repertoire in jazz clubs, restaurants, as well as concert programming.

This is Mundo Nouvo at its grandest. Eleven musicians make up this orchestra that looks to inspire as much movement as the dance floor can stand. Salsa classics such as Ray Barretto's 'Indestructible' can be found in the group's repertoire alongside originals in styles as varied as Cumbia, Merengue, Bomba and more. Whether it be the power-of-Puerto Rican-percussion from the Ramos brothers or the sly arrangements carried out by the horn section, this is the big band that never lets the room stand still!

[more+]

A grand masterpiece of the classical canon, Beethoven’s “Emperor” Piano Concerto earned that nickname for its unmistakably grand and noble qualities. While Beethoven composed the work when he was confronting deafness, the concerto still exudes pride and heroism — expansive, powerful music refusing to surrender to the misery Beethoven suffered during its composition. Wagner’s four-opera cycle The Ring of the Nibelung is the pinnacle of operatic extravagance and indulgence. The Kansas City Symphony presents excerpts from Wagner’s Ring featuring some of the most thrilling and gargantuan episodes of instrumental music from the entire operatic repertoire.

Johannes Debus, guest conductor

Martin Helmchen, piano

Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story on Stage is an unprecedented live experience, exploding with heart-pounding music, passionate romance and sensational dancing. Seen by millions across the globe, this worldwide smash hit tells the classic story of Baby and Johnny, two fiercely independent young spirits from different worlds who come together in what will be the most challenging and triumphant summer of their lives. Featuring the hit songs, “Hungry Eyes,” “Hey Baby, Do You Love Me?” and the heart-stopping “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life.”

It’s the summer of 1963, and 17-year-old Frances “Baby” Houseman is on vacation in New York’s Catskill Mountains with her older sister and parents. Baby discovers her own entertainment when she stumbles upon the staff quarters where an all-night dance party is in full swing. Mesmerized by the raunchy dance moves and the pounding rhythms, Baby can’t wait to be part of the scene, especially when she catches sight of Johnny Castle, the resort dance instructor. Baby’s life is about to change forever as she is thrown in at the deep end as Johnny’s leading lady both on-stage and off with breathtaking consequences.

Don’t miss your chance to see this record-breaking and adventurous live theatre sensation. You’ll have the time of your life!

[more+]

HMC will join forces with the National World War I Museum and Memorial to celebrate the principles of our great nation's founding . . . that all are created equal. Part of the concert is dedicated to songs of resistance and remembrance, remembering those who have fought and died for our country as well as those important to us who have passed.

Heartland Men's Chorus, in cooperation with the National World War I Museum and Memorial and in commemoration of the WWI centennial, commissioned Minneapolis-based composer Timothy C. Takach to compose an oratorio for men's voices, soloists, and chamber ensemble title, We The Unknown. It is the story of Sgt. Edward F. Younger.

Sgt. Younger, a decorated soldier of the First World War was given the sobering task of selecting the remains that would make their way from France to the United States to Arlington National Cemetery to be interred in the newly established Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The remains of four soldiers came one each from the major battlefields in which United States forces had fought: Meuse-Argonne, Aisne-Marne, the Somme, and St. Mihel. Sgt. Younger was asked to take a bouquet of white roses and lay them on one of the four coffins. The rose-laden coffin would become America's first Unknown Soldier. We The Unknown brings Sgt. Younger's task to life and give voice to the four unknown soldiers from whom America's Unknown was chosen. In one instance, rather than the unknown soldier telling his story, it is his Gold Star mother, speaking on his behalf, and on behalf of all who have lost sons, and later daughters, to combat. Heartland Men's Chorus is also proud to be joined by the men of the U.S. Army Field Band's Soldier's Chorus.

We The Unknown is a musical, theatrical and historical undertaking of enormous proportions, one endorsed by the National World War I Centennial Commission. We hope you will attend to collectively honor those who have served in uniform, many paying the ultimate sacrifice, and honor their memory - named or nameless - through song.

He performs as a full-time member with Kansas City’s iconic Boulevard Big Band, St. Louis’s Dave Dickey Big Band, and MERGE, his original jazz quintet. He is also a frequent collaborator with the Kansas City Jazz Orchestra and the Jim Widner Big Band. His debut album, recorded in August 2017, will be released this fall on the Artists Recording Collective label.

By Taylor Mac

30 May - 24 June

Directed by Ian R. Crawford

The Jerome Stage

When a soldier returns from a war zone in the Middle East to his suburban home, he discovers a household undergoing a total upheaval. His mother has been liberated from an oppressive marriage after his father's stroke, and with the help of his newly out transgender brother, she is passionately dismantling the patriarchy. In Taylor Mac's progressive and absurd comedy, this family may find that even the most radical changes can't always free you from the weight of the past.

[more+]

Combining both Spanish and Haitian-Creole language, Mundo Nouvo ['mun.do-nu.vo] means "New World". This ensemble looks to source its material from the roots of Afro-Caribbean music with special emphasis on Cuban and Haitian traditions. At its fullest, Mundo Nouvo operates as an 11-piece Salsa Orchestra that plays the dance halls for crowds that love the timeless groove of guaracha, merengue, mambo, etc. This band also adapts to smaller formations (3-8 instruments) to play its repertoire in jazz clubs, restaurants, as well as concert programming.

This is Mundo Nouvo at its grandest. Eleven musicians make up this orchestra that looks to inspire as much movement as the dance floor can stand. Salsa classics such as Ray Barretto's 'Indestructible' can be found in the group's repertoire alongside originals in styles as varied as Cumbia, Merengue, Bomba and more. Whether it be the power-of-Puerto Rican-percussion from the Ramos brothers or the sly arrangements carried out by the horn section, this is the big band that never lets the room stand still!

[more+]

A grand masterpiece of the classical canon, Beethoven’s “Emperor” Piano Concerto earned that nickname for its unmistakably grand and noble qualities. While Beethoven composed the work when he was confronting deafness, the concerto still exudes pride and heroism — expansive, powerful music refusing to surrender to the misery Beethoven suffered during its composition. Wagner’s four-opera cycle The Ring of the Nibelung is the pinnacle of operatic extravagance and indulgence. The Kansas City Symphony presents excerpts from Wagner’s Ring featuring some of the most thrilling and gargantuan episodes of instrumental music from the entire operatic repertoire.

Johannes Debus, guest conductor

Martin Helmchen, piano

Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story on Stage is an unprecedented live experience, exploding with heart-pounding music, passionate romance and sensational dancing. Seen by millions across the globe, this worldwide smash hit tells the classic story of Baby and Johnny, two fiercely independent young spirits from different worlds who come together in what will be the most challenging and triumphant summer of their lives. Featuring the hit songs, “Hungry Eyes,” “Hey Baby, Do You Love Me?” and the heart-stopping “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life.”

It’s the summer of 1963, and 17-year-old Frances “Baby” Houseman is on vacation in New York’s Catskill Mountains with her older sister and parents. Baby discovers her own entertainment when she stumbles upon the staff quarters where an all-night dance party is in full swing. Mesmerized by the raunchy dance moves and the pounding rhythms, Baby can’t wait to be part of the scene, especially when she catches sight of Johnny Castle, the resort dance instructor. Baby’s life is about to change forever as she is thrown in at the deep end as Johnny’s leading lady both on-stage and off with breathtaking consequences.

Don’t miss your chance to see this record-breaking and adventurous live theatre sensation. You’ll have the time of your life!

Presented by Heartland Men's Chorus at The Folly Theater, Kansas City

[more+]

HMC will join forces with the National World War I Museum and Memorial to celebrate the principles of our great nation's founding . . . that all are created equal. Part of the concert is dedicated to songs of resistance and remembrance, remembering those who have fought and died for our country as well as those important to us who have passed.

Heartland Men's Chorus, in cooperation with the National World War I Museum and Memorial and in commemoration of the WWI centennial, commissioned Minneapolis-based composer Timothy C. Takach to compose an oratorio for men's voices, soloists, and chamber ensemble title, We The Unknown. It is the story of Sgt. Edward F. Younger.

Sgt. Younger, a decorated soldier of the First World War was given the sobering task of selecting the remains that would make their way from France to the United States to Arlington National Cemetery to be interred in the newly established Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The remains of four soldiers came one each from the major battlefields in which United States forces had fought: Meuse-Argonne, Aisne-Marne, the Somme, and St. Mihel. Sgt. Younger was asked to take a bouquet of white roses and lay them on one of the four coffins. The rose-laden coffin would become America's first Unknown Soldier. We The Unknown brings Sgt. Younger's task to life and give voice to the four unknown soldiers from whom America's Unknown was chosen. In one instance, rather than the unknown soldier telling his story, it is his Gold Star mother, speaking on his behalf, and on behalf of all who have lost sons, and later daughters, to combat. Heartland Men's Chorus is also proud to be joined by the men of the U.S. Army Field Band's Soldier's Chorus.

We The Unknown is a musical, theatrical and historical undertaking of enormous proportions, one endorsed by the National World War I Centennial Commission. We hope you will attend to collectively honor those who have served in uniform, many paying the ultimate sacrifice, and honor their memory - named or nameless - through song.
