Meet Our New Underwriters March 2016

“In The Mood” is a celebration of the music of the 1930s and '40s – the Big Band era. It was the last time that all Americans were listening and dancing to the same kind of music. With a 13-piece orchestra and singers and dancers, the great melodies and lyrics that are still with us today are presented in a musical revue that is jazzy, sentimental, rhythmic, nostalgic and patriotic. Performing at the Kauffman Center, March 16-17. Learn more at their website.
