CASA was thrilled to partner with Presenting Sponsor Edmonds Duncan Registered Investment Advisors and the KU Wind Ensemble for our inaugural "Winds Across the Prairie" benefit concert to support CASA's work with the most vulnerable children in our community.
Co-sponsored by Renaissance Painting and Lynn Piller, along with Bartlett & West, Steve & Chris Edmonds, Helen Seymour, Mary & Wint Winter and Fairway Independent Mortgage Corp., the event was held on Friday, September 10th. Attendees enjoyed gourmet farm to table picnic baskets including champagne, salads, cheese, bread, entrée and dessert by Evan Williams Catering.
The 60-member University of Kansas Wind Ensemble, conducted by director of bands Paul W. Popiel, performed selection of American orchestral favorites, including an exquisite "Concerto for Clarinet" by Artie Shaw, that ended with a moving rendition of "Home on the Range" with the audience singing along under a gorgeous Kansas sunset.
