51st Symphony Designers’ Showhouse

Presented by the Kansas City Symphony Alliance

April 11 – May 10, 2020

 The Symphony Designers’ Showhouse is a Kansas City tradition! Each year, a Kansas City landmark residence is selected for the Symphony Designers’ Showhouse. The homeowners move out and a preview of the “undecorated” house is open to the public, usually in January. Local designers are selected to transform each room of the home into a design showplace. The “finished” Showhouse is then opened to the public. The Symphony Designers’ Showhouse is a benefit for the Kansas City Symphony.

51st Symphony Designers’ Showhouse 2020

The 51st Symphony Designers’ Showhouse will be the home at 500 E. 36th Street in Kansas City, Missouri. This charming home in historic Hyde Park was built in 1909 and was designed by famed local architect Louis Curtiss for Frank Brumback and his wife, the artist Louise Upton Brumback. More than 30 design spaces will be transformed for the tour!
