Summit Christian Academy freshman Benjamin Schwab performed with the Kansas City Youth Symphony in it's Fall Concert. Schwab is the first student from SCA to participate in the Kansas City Youth Symphony.

After an extensive city-wide audition process, Schwab performed with the orchestra’s Fall Concert at Yardley Hall.

The Kansas City Youth Symphony, founded in 1958, features nearly 500 student musicians in fifth through twelfth grades.  The students come from the Kansas City metropolitan area and outlying communities in Kansas and Missouri and seek a high-quality music education in a challenging and nurturing musical environment.  The students come together weekly and are led by professional conductors and music educators in one of four full orchestras or young strings programs.

More than 120 schools are represented at the Kansas City Youth Symphony.  This was SCA’s first year to have a student participant.

“We are very proud of Ben for going above and beyond in representing SCA at a city level,” said SCA’s Orchestra Director Michelle Nagy.  “Ben represents our school well. ”
