The 2019 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 honored that the KC Streetcar is a “venue” of choice for musicians. We are excited to once again be a conduit for local artists and musicians to share their talent with Kansas City,” 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.
