We hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday season with plenty of friends, family, and delicious food! KCCO closed out this year with two fantastic “Sounds of the Season” performances – the Friday night concert was preceded by our annual Silent Auction Fundraiser, which included some great items, and on Saturday our special guest conductor for Sleigh Ride was KMBC Chief Meteorologist and KCCO tympanist Bryan Busby.
Fabulous concerts aren’t all that we’ve been up to during the first part of our 60th season – our outreach committee has been busy sharing their love of music with the community. Our coordinators have performed 66 sessions at 15 locations for just over 2,300 students, inspired approximately 130 aspiring musicians at our fifth annual Instrument Petting Zoo, and performed 72 sessions for seniors since September!
KCCO would like to thank you, our listeners and supporters, for making these concerts and outreach events possible. We are especially grateful to those of you who contributed toward our recent campaign for $5,000 in matching funds – we reached our goal and received an additional $10,000! These funds help us cover the costs associated with the concerts and outreach programs that we offer to the community at no cost.
We’re looking forward to seeing you at our March concert, “Legend, Lyricism, and Ludwig”, and our May performance at Helzberg Hall. Until then, we wish you a very happy new year!
