KC Symphony, Garrick Ohlsson review by Libby Hanssen
The Kansas City Symphony presented a program imbued with

orchestra featured selections of symphonic repertoire that sourced
vernacular idioms, anchoring the concert on George Gershwin’s
ever-popular “Rhapsody in Blue” for a sold-out weekend in Helzberg Hall.
