“In terms of preparation, there's not a whole lot of difference between this project and what we usually do--there are notes to be learned, tricky passages and rhythms to be mastered and so on,” said Samarov. “The style of this music is different from what we usually do, but then even within standard orchestral literature there is a wide variety of styles, so that's just another style we need to learn.”
With their self-titled first album released in 1974, KANSAS went on to become one of the decade’s most popular rock acts – issuing classic rock albums such as 1976’s Leftoverture and 1977’s Point of Know Return. The band is comprised of singer/keyboardist Steve Walsh, guitarist Rich Williams, bassist Billy Greer, drummer Phil Ehart and violinist David Ragsdale.
The 2011 KANSAS Collegiate Symphony Tour is sponsored by D’Addario & Company, a manufacturer of musical accessories.
