The Kansas City Symphony Alliance (ECSA) has announced that the organization’s 51st Symphony Designers’ Showhouse will be the home at 500 Est 36th Street in the Hyde Park neighborhood of 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. Many of the home’s original features have been retained.
The home will be open for a Candlelight Preview party on Wednesday, January 8 from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. This catered party is for KCSA members and their guests, and is $40 per person. Appetizers, buffet dinner and wine will be served. Our honored guests as this party will be Danny Beckley, the Executive Director of the Kansas City Symphony, and the homeowners of the Showhouse. Your RSVPs are due January 3, 2020.
A Public Preview for the Showhouse, before it is redecorated, will be held over two weekends in January, January 11-12 and January 18-19 from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door; cash, checks, credit or debit cards accepted. Visitors at the Public Preview will have the chance to purchase discounted spring Showhouse tour tickets at two for $30 (tickets normally $20 each in advance, or $25 at the door).
The Showhouse will open to the public on Saturday, April 11, 2020 and will close on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 10, 2020.
Kellie Sullivan is the chair of the Showhouse Committee.
