The rooftops of Downtown Kansas City will come alive on Thursday evening May 4, at 7:00 pm, when composer and musician Daniel Morel presents Kansas City Calling

The performance will take place at Prairie Logic, the public art installation and performance venue on the Green Roof above Cosentino’s Parking Garage, 1261 Main St, on the 6th floor.

Kansas City Calling is an evening-length musical happening that evokes both the bustling past and thriving current day of our Midwestern metropolis. The program features the music of Daniel Morel and draws on original and borrowed music to represent the city’s history. Musicians wander the rooftop park of Prairie Logic with ambient hums, antiphonal calls, and spoken texts to build a soundscape wafting over the skyline.

Daniel Morel is a Kansas City-based composer whose works are permeated with the Western sensibilities of his Colorado upbringing, drawing on influences ranging from prairie thunderstorms to classic American poetry.  Performance details and further information are available at www.danmorel.com.
