The year 2012 opens with a bang in January, as classical music fans have a wealth of offerings from which to choose. The Kansas City Symphony presents two concerts, including one with the celebrated cellist Yo-Yo Ma playing the ravishing Dvorák Cello Concerto. The Harriman-Jewell Series presents the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra with famed conductor Jeffrey Tate and violinist Guy Braunstein. Parsons Dance Company, founded by Kansas City native David Parsons, graces the Kauffman Center stage for the first time, under the sponsorship of the Harriman-Jewell Series. The Kansas City Chamber Orchestra opens the 2012 Bach Festival with a performance of all six (count ‘em, six) of Bach’s endlessly inventive "Brandenburg Concertos," while two of today’s finest pianists, Simone Dinnerstein (Yardley Hall) and Freddy Kempf (Folly Theater) grace our local stages. Chamber music fans will enjoy both the Chiara String Quartet (Lied Center) and Violons du Roy (Folly Theater) with recorder virtuoso Maurice Steger. Enjoy!
