The Friends of Chamber Music has long been proud to partner with other arts organizations to bring the arts to the greater Kansas City community. Here are a few of the outreach programs we are presenting this season:
Pre-Concert Lectures and Panels
Our Pre-Concert Lectures and Panels are FREE to concert ticket holders.
This program is directed and curated by Dr. William Everett of UMKC.
Young Friends of Chamber Music
Through our Young Friends program, we offer children free and discounted tickets to our concerts, as well as free workshops. Click here to learn more.
The Friends of Chamber Music has partnered with Heartland Chamber Music to offer free performances from local youth chamber orchestras before select concerts. The student performers and their families receive free tickets to the concert.
FCM in the Classroom
The Friends of Chamber Music's Cynthia Siebert has presented lectures on the importance of classical music to local high school Music Theory and German Language students. Are you a teacher? Get in touch with our community outreach director to bring FCM into your classroom!
We always strive to give our patrons the opportunity to meet the artists. Many of our concerts are followed by a brief meet-and-greet autograph session in the lobby. We also include our artists in special events. For instance, last season, we treated local piano teachers to an intimate chat with pianist, Konstantin Lifschitz. Coffee with Konstantin gave the teachers in our community a chance to discuss the art of the keyboard with the master pianist before his concert at The Folly Theater.
To be the first in-the-know about special programming, sign up for our e-blasts! E-blast recipients will be the first to hear about one-on-one artist events, student performances, and pre-concert lectures. Sign up today!
If you enjoy what we do, consider volunteering for The Friends!
Our volunteers help FCM reach the communities we serve, and they are a vital part of our concert experience. Plus, volunteers get free tickets to our concerts! Click here to learn more about volunteering for The Friends of Chamber Music.
