In addition to the performance itself, the Kansas City Symphony will also work with students in an open rehearsal during the day prior to the public performance.

Center School District offers a comprehensive arts program to expose students to a wide variety of art including music, theater, and visual arts. Programs begin in elementary school with all students receiving art instruction on a regular basis, including the opportunity to create their own works of art. Performance based activities include band, choral music, a variety of theatrical performances each year, and a wide range of visual arts experiences including public exhibitions of student art work.
