Event Navigation

Sunday, May 28, 2023
5 p.m.
Union Station and The National WWI Museum and Memorial

Kansas City’s favorite Memorial Day tradition! Join the Kansas City Symphony for Bank of America Celebration at the Station. The Symphony’s free concert event takes place on the South Plaza of Union Station Kansas City and the North Lawn of the National WWI Museum and Memorial – both near Pershing Road and Main Street, just south of Downtown Kansas City, Mo. The festivities begin at 5 p.m. and includes food trucks, live pre-concert entertainment on the main stage with Drive On and the Back Alley Brass Band, plus various vendors and booths in the Kansas City National Security Campus, managed by Honeywell FM&T Veterans Place.

Then at 8 p.m., Music Director Michael Stern leads the Kansas City Symphony in a concert featuring special guests The Resilient performing works by Paul Simon, Leonard Cohen and more. The Resilient is a rock band primarily composed of severely wounded U.S. combat veterans and they proudly return to Kansas City after first performing with the Symphony in 2013. The Kansas City Symphony also performs iconic patriotic works by John Williams, Aaron Copland and John Phillip Sousa, plus crowd favorites Armed Forces Salute and the 1812 Overture with live cannons. The grand finale features a stunning fireworks display accompanied by your Kansas City Symphony. It’s the perfect kick-off to your summer!
