Celebration at the Station
Every year I have been in Kansas City, my girlfriend and I have gone to Union Station to watch the symphony. This year we were able to walk there, and there were over forty thousand people in attendance to watch Michael Stern and the Kansas City Symphony perform multiple American classics. We sat on the first berm overlooking Pershing Road as Union Station was the backdrop to the nights events. There was also a band called Cherryholmes that performed alongside the symphony. This is the one time during the year that they light the facade of Union Station with multiple scenes that play into the musical performance. As they played the last song, they began to shoot off fireworks over the World War I Liberty Memorial. Its a great time every year and I am glad to see that so many people are able to celebrate this day of remembrance. The images above are just a few of my favorites of the night.
