Air Supply
Air Supply

Get more info about this event »

Description: Graham Russell & Russell Hitchcock met on May 12, 1975 at rehearsals for "Jesus Christ Superstar" in Sydney, Australia; they became instant friends with their common love for The Beatles and, of course, singing. In 1980 "Lost in Love" became the fastest selling single in the world, leaping to the top of all of the charts and was named Song of the Year. Seven top-five singles later, Air Supply at that time had equaled The Beatles' run of consecutive top five singles. The albums "Lost in Love," "The One That You Love," "Now & Forever," and "The Greatest Hits" sold in excess of 20 million copies. The trademark sound of Russell Hitchcock's soaring tenor voice and Graham Russell's simple yet majestic songs created a unique sound that would forever be known as Air Supply. http://www.k-state.edu/mccain/events/2016-2017/air-supply.html The McCain box office is open weekdays 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 90 minutes before each performance. 785.532.6428 Submitted by: Todd Holmberg McCain Performance Series

Description: Jon Stickley Trio combines Jon Stickley’s rapid-fire flatpicking guitar with the sultry and wild, yet refined, melodies of Lyndsay Pruett on violin set over the deep groove of Patrick Armitage on drums. The three have fused their collective styles into a repertoire of exciting and innovative original music along with some captivating covers. Submitted by: Kim McDowell Great Plains Theatre

Kansas City Symphony Classical Series: Chopin, Brahms and Wagner

Get more info about this event »

Description: Asher Fisch, guest conductor George Li, piano CHOPIN Piano Concerto No. 1 BRAHMS Variations on a Theme by Haydn WAGNER Suite from Die Meistersinger Chopin’s compositions capture the sensitivity and self-expression of the Romantic era while upholding a sense of classic purity. His First Piano Concerto highlights the soloist’s elegant and virtuosic technique, all capped by a lively Polish folk dance. Composed three years before his First Symphony, Brahms’ glowing Haydn Variations is an early work of an orchestral master. These Kansas City Symphony concerts close with a jubilant jaunt from Wagner’s comic opera, The Mastersingers of Nuremberg, which is bursting with melody and high spirits from first note to last. Tickets start at $25. Submitted by: Beth Buchanan Kansas City Symphony
