The Kansas City Symphony has played at a number of venues, but this fall it will perform at Arrowhead Stadium for the first time.

On Sept. 17, the KC Symphony will perform the national anthem for the Chiefs home opener against the Denver Broncos.

The game will be broadcast on CBS as part of Thursday Night Football, with the performance set to begin just before the Chiefs’ 7:25 start time.

We like the sound of that (literally).

You might remember the symphony’s performance at Kauffman Stadium last year during Game 6 of the World Series, before the Royals faced the Giants.

If not, here’s a refresher:

The Royals ended up winning that game 10-0, so let’s hope some of that good luck carries over.
