Soundtrack for the Streetcar

Soundtrack for the CityOn Friday, August 5, between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., KC Streetcar patrons will have a unique opportunity to experience new and original music composed by local artist Stacy Busch for the KC Streetcar.


Soundtrack for the City is a musical experience designed specifically for the Kansas City Streetcar. Busch composed 9 songs that are inspired by the various stops along the streetcar route. To enjoy the performance, simply hop off the streetcar and listen to the music which will be playing on the kiosks at all KC Streetcar stops.


Interested in learning more? Meet the composer, Stacy Busch, at the Metro Center NB stop next to the Town Pavilion at 12th & Main Streets, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Friday, August 5.
