Kauffman Center dedication, celebration, redux

Let’s wrap up these often somber re-postings with some from a gloriously happy weekend.

Sept. 19

The Kauffman Center
For the Performing Arts shines
The jewel on the hill

Julia Irene
Carried her mother’s spirit
Made her dream come true

Soaring inner space
Curves and lines in harmony
Draw eyes, hearts upward

Superior sound
Space sculpted to caress notes
Nurture nuances

Ballet, Symphony,
Opera, Placido: first night
Will be remembered

Prince Charles even sent
Greetings; the crowd was all ears
And so was the prince

Symphony returns
And Kansas City jazz swings
For second great night

Cowtown on the moooove
Tens of thousands make the scene
Herd all round downtown

Beacon of culture
Symphony of glass and steel
Defying hard times

And it’s just starting
Next chapter in the story:
“Kansas City, Star”
