He returns to his hometown to join his friend and friend of the Nelson-Atkins Chris Goode, who will share insights about music selections, including one work inspired by art in The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art collection. This performance is food for the soul, like a Sunday dinner where everyone feels nourishment and a sense of belonging.
