51st Symphony Designers’ Showhouse

Presented by the Kansas City Symphony Alliance

The 51st Symphony Designers’ Showhouse was to have been at 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 were transformed for the tour.

Unfortunately the Showhouse, although completed by the designers, was unable to open to the public due to restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic.  Therefore, a video tour was made of the Showhouse and is available at our sister web site, showhouse.org.  Please go there for a link to the video tour and enjoy seeing the Showhouse as it was completed, together with interesting comments from some of our designers.

There is no charge, but we request your voluntary donation to help make up the loss caused by our inability to open the Showhouse to the public this year.

We are working on the 52nd Symphony Designers’ Showhouse to hopefully be held in the spring of 2021. Please come and join us then!
