Christine Brewer is one of the world's most acclaimed and respected sopranos. She will perform a work for which she has a special affinity -- and one of the most gorgeous works ever composed -- Richard Strauss' Four Last Songs. Tchaikovsky's delightful Second Symphony, the "Little Russian," so-called because of its folk-inspired melodies, brings the concert to a thrilling close. Concerts are Feb. 22-24, 2013. Tickets available at kcsymphony.org or call (816) 471-0400.
