Kearney, Mo., May 9, 2024: Kearney School District freshman Jacklyn Kirkland and sophomore Zoe Wells will be performing with the Youth Symphony of Kansas City (YSKC) Philharmonic Orchestra during its 65th anniversary season-finale concerts this Sunday, May 12 at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts.

Miss Kirkland and Miss Wells were selected last fall from many applicants to be a part of this amazing program. This is truly a huge honor for them and for our music department. This weekend’s concerts are a culmination of their hard work.

YSKC is the premier youth orchestra program in the region that serves more than 400 musicians in grades 5–12, according to the symphony’s website. It comprises four full orchestras, a chamber music program, introductory and advanced chamber orchestras, elective classes, a summer micro-camp, multiple ancillary programs and a new Educational Residency program led by the Opus 76 Quartet. Every opportunity provides quality music education experiences to young musicians representing 111 schools and 57 communities across Kansas and Missouri.
