Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts

Description: Tuesday, September 14, 2021 at 7 p.m. Helzberg Hall | Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts In his first concert appearance since winning the coveted American Pianists Awards this summer, pianist Kenny Broberg will be celebrated by Kansas City audiences in a performance with the Kansas City Chamber Orchestra in Helzberg Hall. Already a favorite in Kansas City, Kenny is one of the most decorated pianists of his generation having previously won the bronze medal in the International Tchaikovsky Competition in 2019 and the silver medal in the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 2017. A student of Cliburn gold medalist Stanislav Ioudenitch at Park University’s International Center for Music, this is your chance to experience Kenny’s artistry before he heads off for an international career this fall. See and hear him in KC first and see what critics are calling “a superb artist with an extraordinary concentration … and ravishing tone.” The concert will include solo piano works on the first half featuring the fiery Dante Sonata by Listz. The Kansas City Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Music Director Bruce Sorrell will open the second half and then join Mr. Broberg for the gorgeous Piano Concerto No. 1 in E flat by Chopin. Tickets range from $20 to $40 plus applicable fees, with additional discounts for students (1/2 price), seniors and military. Please call the box office at 816.994.7222 for ticket discount purchases.
