The UMKC Conservatory hosted 500 guests for a spectacular dinner at the Crescendo Gala. A dazzling performance was put on in Helzberg Hall by two hundred and fifty of the Conservatory’s most talented students and faculty. When guests entered the Kauffman Center they were greeted by what looked like giant colorful bubbles lining the space. Six hundred thousand dollars were raised to support scholarships for Conservatory students on stage.
