Kansas City Symphony Poised To Move To Webster School Building In Crossroads

Looks like one of Kansas City’s most beloved cultural institutions is about to get new digs. The Kansas City Symphony announced today that it will be creating new headquarters this summer at the Webster School building at 1644 Wyandotte Street in downtown Kansas City’s Crossroads Arts District. “The Webster School building will be the front door to the Kansas City Symphony, where we will provide new ways for the community to interact with us through recitals, educational programs, events and opportunities to meet our musicians,” says Danny Beckley, Kansas City Symphony executive director. “This will be a perfect complement to our mainstage performances just next door in Helzberg Hall at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. This historic space will help us provide context to the art of symphonic music, which will deepen engagement with our community.”

The new facility promises to become a new cultural asset for the people of Kansas City, promoting the advancement of the symphonic arts. Musicians will gain individual and small group practice space accessible 365 days a year. “Having the energy of our musicians in this space is an evolution of our culture of creativity and open-armed service to the community,” says Beckley. “We are excited by the opportunities for new relationships made possible by the nature of the building.”
