Symphony Designers’ Showhouse

The 42nd Symphony Designers’ Showhouse will mark its opening on April 28th with the Showhouse Celebration.  The event will be an opportunity to meet the designers and landscapers who have renovated the house at 1000 Westover Road.  The evening will feature a performance by the Kansas City Youth Jazz and drawings for fabulous prizes, as well as wine and hors d’oeuvres. The Kansas City Symphony Alliance coordinates the Showhouse, and proceeds benefit the Symphony.  Joan Braswell and Nancy McGuire are the Celebration co-chairmen.
