Kansas with the Kennesaw State University Symphony Orchestra
Kansas’s art-rock epics of the ’70s brought an American flavor to progressive rock, a genre dominated by Europeans. That touch of home probably contributed to the band’s chart successes, too, with songs such as “Dust in the Wind” and “Carry On Wayward Son.” The band includes several Atlanta residents, among them original drummer Phil Ehart, who had a big hand in putting together this Collegiate Symphony tour. The tour raises money for college and university music programs and will take the band to schools in New York, Florida, South Dakota, Louisiana and many other states.
8 p.m. Sept. 30. Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, 2800 Cobb Galleria Parkway, Atlanta.
