Featured Reviews
"The Midwest Chamber Ensemble is the most fearless ensemble in Kansas City. With only two seasons under its belt, the group of pre-professionals hasn’t shied away from presenting the typical Beethoven and Brahms but their commitment to new music and that of the 20th century is equally telling." -Lee Hartman, KCMETROPOLIS

[An] exciting lineup of world premieres, guest artists, collaborations, and favorite classic repertoire should make Midwest Chamber Ensemble the group to keep your eye on in the coming year." -Karen Hague, KCMETROPOLIS
