Vintage Kansas - A Celebration of Kansas City Past!
Vintage Kansas City's Horner Institute of Fine Arts


     Kansas City is rapidly coming to be recognized as a great center in art as in commerce.  She is making strides so rapidly that a summing up of her achievements today would tomorrow be inadequate.
   The Kansas City Symphony Orchestra, Carl Bush, conductor, founded only a few years ago, enjoys a  tremendous popularity  with the public, and is fast developing into one of the truly great orchestras of the country.  This orchestra will continue its regular series of concerts, presenting programs of the highest order, which are of inestimable value to the music student.
     The Kansas City Grand Opera Company, fostered by the Kansas City Conservatory of Music, presents each  year a week of grand opera.
     Two string quartettes, the Shostac Quartette and the Philharmonic Quartette, furnish an abundance of chamber music.
     Kansas City is known among managers and artists as one city where a good audience may be depended upon.  As a result, the greatest European and American artists visit the city, and the cost of course tickets to the different series of concerts is surprisingly low.
     In the last few years the opera companies from Chicago, Montreal, Boston and New Orleans have played repeated engagements in Kansas City and always to record audiences.
    All of which gives Kansas City the assurance of continued visits from the great artists and musical organizations.
     During the season of 1915-1916 the following celebrated artists and organizations, in addition to a host of less known ones, have appeared in Kansas City:

Minneapolis Symphony

     Numerous dramas of high literary excellence, which have received the approval of the Drama League and the dramatic world, have come to Kansas City with the same cast of characters as have appeared in New York, Chicago and other large centers.
