American Residency Tour Entertains and Inspires Kansas

Kansas was the site of the National Symphony Orchestra's 2007 American Residency - an annual program, unique to the NSO, in which the orchestra accepts the invitation from one of our nation's states to make that region the focus of a host of musical events. During the March 2007 Kansas tour, the members of the Orchestra participated in approximately 120 education and performance activities in all regions of the state. The NSO performed a total of six orchestral concerts, including a concert for young people plus dozens of educational and outreach activities and other events. Music Director Leonard Slatkin and Associate Conductor Emil de Cou led the orchestra in programs consisting of music by Copland, Schubert, Ravel, Beethoven, Gershwin, Mozart, Stravinsky, Brahms, Tchaikovsky and Wagner among many others.

The American Residency is one of the signature projects of the National Symphony Orchestra and NSO Executive Director Rita Shapiro states "Music Director Leonard Slatkin, Associate Conductor Emil de Cou, and the members of the Orchestra all give extensively of their many talents during the Residency, and are richly rewarded, in turn, by all that we learn and bring back home to the Kennedy Center."

By allowing Classical Movements' experts to manage the multitude of complex logistics involved in performance travel, the NSO musicians were free to focus on their music performance and on their personal interaction with the individuals and students they encountered along the way. Classical Movements applauds The National Symphony Orchestra on a successful tour, and more importantly, on a most successful program.
