Here’s a letter from Ms. Doering:

Hello, Friends and Family,

Over the past year at The Juilliard School, violinist Maria Im and I had the opportunity to work together. We had so much fun we decided to bring our music to you here in Kansas City! We will be performing on Saturday, August 3 at 4:30 pm in the Schmitt Music Hall in Overland Park. We have put together a concert of some of our favorite music from light classical to a few favorites of Gerswhin. We would love for you to come out and join in our concert with music and friendship. Feel free to invite friends and family. The event is free with a good will donation to help pay for travel expenses and the venue fee. We are excited to be here in Kansas and look forward to seeing you on Saturday!

Kristen and Maria
