About this show

A new story celebrating the extraordinary grass-roots efforts to save the Kansas City Philharmonic, with music and lyrics by Krista Eyler, and book by Krista Eyler and Barbara Nichols.

It's 1953, and the symphonic sounds of the Kansas City Philharmonic are dimming as the iconic cultural institution fights for its existence. Amid this existential battle led by the grass-roots efforts of the determined Philharmonic staff, their own personal struggles ignite a crescendo of passions which has each of them fighting for their own survival. A poignant love story about saving something extraordinary and building something beautiful, this real-life story plucks at our heart-strings through real voices and contemporary musical sounds.
