The KC Symphony picks up a dose of the Quixotic tonight
Quixotic already has a well-deserved cult following in Kansas City for the dynamic group’s genre-defying aerobatic performances. Now Quixotic is joining the Kansas City Symphony for a fascinating subversion of the ballet-and-symphony tradition. The full orchestra is set to play onstage with the Quixotic performers, accompanying them with familiar classical pieces that have been given striking new arrangements. Frank Byrne, the symphony’s executive director, talked about the new partnership.
