Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts


Please join us for breakfast at The Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. Following breakfast we have been invited to attend a rehearsal of the Kansas City Symphony in beautiful Helzberg Hall, a setting once described by Yo-Yo Ma as “like playing inside of a cello”!
This Kansas City landmark has two unique venues—The Muriel Kauffman Theater and The Helzberg Concert Hall. The building, designed by world famous architect Moshe Safdie, has two symmetrical over-arching half shells. Each side is acoustically independent from the other, allowing simultaneous performances in each location. The south facade of the center is made entirely of glass, offering a stunning view of the city.
