Open House at the Kauffman Center


It was a cloudy, rainy day for the Open House.  There were over 22,000 people register and with families and unregistered the Kauffman Center was expecting over 40,000 people to walk through the building.  I was told there was a 2 hour wait to get into the building.  The line wrapped in switchback fashion up and down the drop off drive (which is not a short drive) and then around the building.   I was an usher at the Helzberg Theatre, which is the home to the KC Symphony.  I heard the youth symphony, blues, jazz and choirs throughout the day.  It was spectacular.

Isn't it exciting for you to be part of the opening activities for this spectacular new building? One that will be a focus of Kansas City's cultural life for the next fifty years or longer?
