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.
