Covid-19 has put us into an unexpected hiatus. Obviously, our Spring 2020 season of concerts has been canceled. We can not rehearse. We will be back as soon as the crisis will allow. It will take a bit to get back to speed, and we need our fans and our members to be recruiting new members. In particular, we need string players.

Also, please remember to use Amazon Smile for your Amazon purchases and list the Orchestra as your charity. We then get a tiny fraction of your purchase donated to the Orchestra. Every little bit helps.

Thanks for your patience and we will be seeing you soon.

The 2020 Season Has Begun!

The Orchestra ended 2019 with a stellar performance at Kansas City’s magnificent Union Station.  After a brief break over the holidays, rehearsals have resumed and we’ve welcomed several new faces to our family.  Please, if you play violin, viola, cello, bass, or percussion, we need you!  Weekly rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings at 6:30 PM at London Heights Baptist Church, 734 N. 78th Street, Kansas City, KS.  Email with questions.

Also, we begin 2020 with a new hosting company for our website.  The staff at have been quite generous with their help transitioning our site over from the previous host.  Over time, a new, more functional, more stylish website is planned.

Thanks to everyone that has supported the Orchestra in the past and we’re anxious to entertain you very soon.

Purpose of the Orchestra

My purpose for forming the orchestra was to allow students and community members the opportunity to play in a “full orchestra” setting. Many individuals stop playing after completing school and later want to pick up their instrument again. That is where we come in!
