Kansas City Symphony/Joyce Di Donato
Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato returns! Our hometown star and international diva joins Michael Stern and the Kansas City Symphony to present works by Berlioz and Bernstein. Berlioz’s Death of Cleopatra foreshadows the dramatic stylings of the French composer’s later masterworks. Bernstein’s songs display the great American musician’s lyric genius and wit. Berlioz’s swashbuckling Le corsaire Overture and Bernstein’s timeless Symphonic Dances from West Side Story complete this captivating program.

Hear Bernstein’s Symphony No.1: Jeremiah, the choral work Chichester Psalms, and "Make Your Garden Grow" from Candide.
