MusicSpoke Reading Session
MusicSpoke will present a reading session of new, artist-owned sheet music that focuses on usable music for high schools and universities. The reading session will include material from under-represented composers. We will provide the reading session materials. MusicSpoke reading sessions always prioritize composers from the state and region where the session is held.
Kurt Knecht's compositions have been described as “funky” and “joyous” in the Washington Post, and “brilliant in concept” in The Tracker magazine. His music has been performed at the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, and the Kimmel Center and by Grammy Award winning groups like the KC Chorale and the Washington Chorale. As an eclectic performer, Kurt has been a featured soloist with groups ranging from Smokey Robinson to The Florida Orchestra. He is the frequent collaborative organist/pianist for the Grammy Award winning KC Chorale. He is the organist at St. Paul’s Episcopal in Kansas City and the co-founder of MusicSpoke.
