The Kansas City Symphony performs ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ at Kauffman Stadium ahead of tonight’s game
Tonight’s critical Game 6 in the World Series puts a lot of pressure on the Royals, so here’s hoping our boys fare better in their hometown than they have in San Francisco. To give them a little extra bump this evening will be members of the Kansas City Symphony, performing a rendition of “Star-Spangled Banner” just before the first pitch at 7:07 p.m.
“We believe that Kansas City needs both major league sports AND major league performing arts,” Executive Director Frank Byrne said in a press release. “We are thrilled to support the Royals on their way to victory.”
Earlier this week, the KC Symphony and Symphony Chorus released a video of “Take Me Out to the Ball Game,” which you can watch below. Go, Royals!
