The program is made possible by Humanities Kansas along with an Honors in Action grant from Phi Theta Kappa Music transcends race, gender, class, and geography and throughout history humans have used music to communicate stories, express emotions, and connect us to one another and moments in time and place. This presentation highlights numerous artists and musicians from the Sunflower State and takes a deeper look into how the power of place informs and inspires us musically.
