Where Music Takes You

UMKC Music/Media Library Travels the World

Through August | Miller Nichols Library, Ground Floor

Summer is time for travel!

Whether it’s on a well- deserved vacation, at festivals and summer camps, for jobs and performances, on honeymoons, or heading on to the next chapter of their professional careers, staff and student assistants are off on adventures.

We asked our crew for suggestions on the journey, music they’ll listen to on the road, music they’ll prepare or perform over the summer, or music that brings to mind the experience of travel and destination.

Bon voyage!
