TOPEKA (KSNT)– Live performances are back in the Capital City and that also means performers are back in front of a live audience. Gage Park’s “Music in the Park” at the Gage Park Amphitheater drew in a crowd of hundreds of people.
The Topeka Santa Fe Band performed for the first time in 2021 and the show also included a special performance by Beverly Bernardi Post Conservatory of Dance. These dancers also took the stage for the first time in over a year performing in front of a live audience.
“They’re used to performing for tens of thousands of people,” Beverly Bernardi Post said. “St. Patrick’s Day parade, Santa Fe Band concerts, Mexican Fiesta, Cider Days a lot of filler big events and those all have sidelines so I think we appreciate it more. I think we have an understanding and care more about performing.”
Some of the dancers drove over an hour to perform in Topeka, so it was a special day for the group to come together and perform.
