Formerly known as “Alive After Five,” the “Soundscapes” concert series has a new name and a new lineup. Now, it’s going to be focused on taking listeners through a journey of different genres.

“Soundscapes is more than just a concert series” says coordinator Brian Clay, “it’s the fusion between of music performance and fantastic visual art, one-of-a-kind performances with the exhibitions and collections of the KMA as a backdrop. We have a fantastic new season scheduled, and we invite you to join us for these unforgettable musical experiences in the stunning setting of the KMA.”

There will also be curated performances, cocktails, and dancing in Bailey Hall.
