Civic in the City

An expansion of our outreach efforts initiated by violinist Jennifer Mitchell, “Civic in the City” is a series of recitals prepared and performed in various neighborhoods around the metro area. Debbie Allen, KCCO principal clarinetist, began the program with a series of recitals in her neighborhood in 2020, and it has continued to grow over the last three summers.

Previous Performances

A highlight of Civic in the City is the performance of an original composition for string quartet, As The River Flows, written by our own Debbie Allen.  The inspiration for the composition was watching nature unfold in all its glory while sheltering in place, at the onset of the virus.  As The River Flows includes three movements: Life Endures, Nature Restores, and Water Glistens.
