POPS GOES THE SYMPHONY 

The Kansas City Symphony pulls out all the stops — as it has every Labor Day weekend for 28 years running — for its annual free holiday concert at Shawnee Mission Park (7710 Renner Road, Shawnee). Associate conductor Steven Jarvi waves his baton at 7 p.m., leading the orchestra in pop selections, including tunes from The Sound of Music and Spider-Man. If that's not enough to set your music sense tingling, come hear the kids blow the horns — or whatever instruments the musicians have on hand — for the Instrument Petting Zoo at 5:30 p.m. So bring the family, lawn chairs and blankets, break out the coolers and picnic baskets (but no glass containers, alcohol or pets, please) to the park's Theatre in the Park and enjoy an evening of the symphony under the stars. The parking lot opens at 4:30 p.m.; gates open at 5. For more info, see kcsymphony.org. The concert is sponsored by KUDL 98.1. —Robert Folsom
