Donate and Sponsor

The Lesbian and Gay Band Association is an international group of more than 30 performing organizations, and up to 400 musicians will join us in Kansas City from May 23–27, 2018 to meet new friends, share ideas, and participate in performances. Collaborative plans are underway with the choral ensemble Musica Vocale, and the final concert at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts will feature works by a diverse group of Kansas City-based composers, many of whom will be in attendance at the conference throughout the week!

 

We are so excited to show off our band and our city to fellow musicians from all over the world. Our theme for the conference, “There’s No Place Like Home,” is a nod to one of the most iconic lines from The Wizard of Oz. Although many basic costs of the concert are covered by registration fees, there are still many more expenses that we will need to cover as the host band. Some items that seem basic can the most expensive - from workshop and performance venues to transportation and tuba rentals (tubas don’t fit in the overhead compartment) – we need your help!

 

Please consider joining us in this exciting endeavor and supporting our opportunity to make Kansas City shine on an international stage.
