Music students from Lee’s Summit North High School and Lee’s Summit West High School had the opportunity to perform at the world-renowned Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts on March 12. Thanks to a collaborative effort between the Kauffman Center, area businesses, music directors and music parents, students in the band, choir and orchestra performed in the beautiful Helzberg Hall with more than 1,200 people at each school’s concert.
The LSWHS groups performed in the afternoon and the LSNHS groups performed that evening.
Area businesses provided sponsorship funds covering the rental cost of the hall. Thanks to this support, the Kauffman Center was able to return all of the net ticket proceeds to the schools’ Music Parents organizations as a fundraiser. Music Parents officials estimated that each school would earn close to $10,000 to benefit their music programs.
Hawthorn Bank was a diamond sponsor for the concert. Platinum sponsors were Meyer Music; Brad and Sandy Cox; B&B Theaters; Gale Communities; Henderson Engineers; Rockhill Orthopaedics; Stinson Leonard Street; and Unemployment Insurance Services.
