Music and Theater in the Midwest
Kansas City opened the long-anticipated Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts on September 16 of 2011. Construction started in 2006 on this architecturally stunning building, almost 10 years after Muriel McBrien Kauffman first discussed her vision for the center with family and friends. Kauffman was a Kansas City civic leader and philanthropist. After her death, Julia Kauffman worked to make her mother’s dream a reality.
Planning for the center began in 1999. The center is now home to music, opera, theater, and dance productions and will feature a diverse group of entertainers and performers.
