This is a story about saving something beautiful. Overture celebrates the extraordinary grass-roots effort to help the Kansas City Philharmonic survive during its 1953-1954 season. In 1953, the Kansas City Philharmonic debuted its first opera festival and was striving to become a world-renowned orchestra. At the same time, it was fighting for financial survival. Against this backdrop, we also discover two fictional characters, Lily and Christopher, who share the same passion for music and are fighting for survival in ways of their own.
