Description:

For more than 50 years, The Temptations have prospered, propelling popular music with a series of smash hits and sold-out performances throughout the world. "The crowds are bigger, the sales are sizzling," says one industry report. "The outpouring of affection for this supergroup has never been greater." The history of The Temptations is the history of contemporary American pop. An essential component of the original Motown machine, that amazing engine invented by Berry Gordy, The Temps began their musical life in Detroit in the early '60s. It wasn't until 1964, however, that the Smokey Robinson written-and-produced "The Way You Do the things You Do" turned the guys into stars. An avalanche of hits followed, many of which — "My Girl," for instance — attained immortality. "It's Growing," "Since I Lost My Baby;," "Get Ready," "Ain't Too Proud to Beg," "Beauty Is only Skin Deep," "I Wish It Would Rain" — the hits kept coming.

The current lineup is Otis Williams, Ron Tyson, Terry Weeks, Larry Braggs and Willie Greene Jr. "The more we change," says veteran Ron Tyson, "the more we stay true to ourselves. We're about singing straightup soul. It's a style that will live on forever." "The Temps have always been known for great lead singers," says Williams. "Today we have four of the greatest leads in the proud history of the group." The soaring voice of Philadelphia born and raised Ron Tyson is perhaps the best high tenor in the business. And so The TEMPTATIONS go on, and on, and on.

Description: Michael Stern, conductor Sharon Roffman, violin JOHN CORIGLIANO Elegy for Orchestra BERNSTEIN Serenade for Violin and Orchestra BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 3, “Eroica” In honor of countless contributions to American music, the Kansas City Symphony and Music Director Michael Stern join in the worldwide celebration of the incomparable Leonard Bernstein, who would have been 100 in 2018. Bernstein’s lyrical Serenade culminates in a jazzy episode with the arrival of a band of drunken revelers. The first two chords of Beethoven’s Third Symphony launch a musical odyssey that includes an epic battle, a solemn march, a joyous scherzo, and a breathtaking theme and variations finale that hurtles the “Eroica” to its triumphant conclusion. Tickets from $25. For more information or tickets, please visit kcsymphony.org or call (816) 471-0400. Submitted by: Beth Buchanan Kansas City Symphony
