Live the Music!

The Kansas City Civic Orchestra is a community-based orchestra in the Kansas City metropolitan area. For more than 50 years, our mission has been to bring high quality, free concerts to the local community. Our all-volunteer orchestra is comprised of amateur and professional musicians with one thing in common – a love for music!

We’re fortunate in Kansas City to have amateurs-who-could-be-professionals in spades. Stupendous talent this December popped out of … the Kansas City Civic Orchestra and other volunteer ensembles. – Diane Stafford, KC Star
