The Symphony Designers’ Showhouse is a Kansas City tradition and one of the longest running Showhouses in the country. Sponsored by the Kansas City Symphony Alliance (KCSA), the project is a benefit for the Kansas City Symphony.
Each year, a Kanas City landmark residence is chosen as the Symphony Designers’ Showhouse. The homeowners move out and a public preview of the “undecorated” home is held.
Local designers are selected to transform each room of the home into a design showplace. The “finished” Showhouse is typically open to the public in the spring. Tickets usually go on after the first of the year. Tickets are available online, through outlets and through KCSA members.
The Symphony Designers’ Showhouse is available for private parties during the time the Showhouse is open to the public. The project has been recognized many times by the League of American Orchestras with Gold Book Awards for quality and innovation.
Video Tour Showhouse 51
In 2020, we completed a design transformation on Showhouse 51, but were unable to open to the public due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Fortunately, a complete video tour featuring interviews with our designers is available online by clicking this link. If you enjoy the tour, please consider a donation. All proceeds go to the Kansas City Symphony.
The Symphony Designers’ Showhouse 52 is slated for the spring of 2022. We did not host a Showhouse in 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
