Recital Series – Spring 2024

Noon CDT on Mondays and Tuesdays, February 20, 2024 - April 2, 2024 | Polsky Theatre and Yardley Hall

FREE (tickets not issued or required)


Now in their 35th year, these hourlong, in-person recitals continue to feature some of Kansas City’s most respected professional classical and jazz musicians.


Many tour internationally and perform with noted local organizations like the Kansas City Symphony, the Kansas City Chamber Orchestra and the Kansas City Jazz Orchestra. Some serve on the faculties of conservatories and music programs in Kansas and Missouri. Several entertain at festivals across the country, and others teach privately and enjoy playing in bands for musical theatre.

Limited reserved parking in the Midwest Trust Center west underground garage is provided.
