The 2018 Art in the Loop Summer Music Series creates opportunities for local emerging and established musicians to reach new audiences and infuse downtown with diverse and exciting music.


“We are excited to bring such a diverse sound of music to our streetcar riders as well as elevate the musical talent our city has to offer,” said Donna Mandelbaum, communications director of the KC Streetcar Authority. “Our partnership with the Art in the Loop Foundation has helped us enhance the streetcar ridership experience in ways we didn’t even imagine,” Mandelbaum continued.
