Last weekend, the Lee’s Summit Symphony performed at Lee’s Summit High School at 7:30 p.m. for their Fall Classic. The Fall Classic marked the beginning of the Symphony’s 10th anniversary. In honor of their 10th year, any ten-year old that attended with a parent received a free ticket.
Senior Sydney Loethen’s mother is a clarinet player for the Lee’s Summit Symphony and has attended the concerts in year’s past. “It’s a good group. It provides entertainment for the older generations and it’s talent is valued by Lee’s Summit citizens,” said Loethen.
Loethen herself has been involved in orchestra and said she credits her mother with much of her initial motivation. “She has been a musician for a while and has always encouraged me to continue playing violin,” said Loethen.
The Lee’s Summit Symphony will perform next on Dec. 8 at 4:00 and 7:00 p.m. for Holiday Magic. Tickets for any Lee’s Summit Symphony shows can be purchased through their website www.lssymphony.org.
