Lee’s Summit Parks and Recreation is Partnering with Kansas City Symphony
Lee’s Summit Parks and Recreation (LSPR) is excited to announce our partnership with Kansas City Symphony to bring free “Pop-Up” outdoor music events this autumn to Lee’s Summit parks. Be on the lookout for performances coming soon to your local parks with an announcement the day of the event on our website at LSParks.net and on our Facebook Page, facebook.com/LSParksAndRecreation
“The parks provide an atmosphere for proper social distancing,” Jeff Barker, Director of Marketing for Kansas City Symphony, said. “The autumn weather in the heartland adds to the concert experience. Cool breezes and comfortable settings. Parks are also perfect family locales, and we want to share our music with your family, friends and neighbors.”
“We are excited to partner with the Kansas City Symphony and their talented musicians to provide these “Pop-Up” performances in our parks,” Joe Snook, LSPR Administrator, said. “We look forward to sharing these cultural experiences with our community this fall.”
The scheduled performances will last approximately 45-60 minutes. A list of music they will perform will be available at kcsymphony.org that evening. Photography is welcome at the event (no flash, please). We encourage you to share your photos on social media, tagging the Symphony @kcsymphony and LSPR at @lsparksandrec on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The Symphony is excited to perform these concerts and does so as a service to the community. All Symphony Neighborhood Concerts are performed free of charge. Donations will not be accepted at the event.
