For the second time, the Kirkwood High School Symphonic Orchestra is preparing for a trip to New York City. In March of 2010, the ensemble performed in Carnegie Hall, one of three orchestras invited to do so. The orchestra has again been honored by its selection to compete in the prestigious National Orchestra Cup on March 2, 2013 in Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall. The KHS Symphonic Orchestra will compete with several other orchestras from around the county for the title of Grand Champion and the National Cup.
WICKED is about the untold story of the witches of Oz.
The musical is based on the 1995 novel written by Gregory Maguire, WICKED: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West. While many people know the 1939 film, The Wizard of Oz, both stories take place in a world based on L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful World of Oz, written in 1900.
