What people are saying about Open Doors

“I can’t tell you enough how generous everyone is who is involved with making it financially possible to attend a symphony concert at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. Your generosity and the teachers who share the power of music help build a generation of future patrons of the arts.  Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!”
Kody, Music Teacher

“Thank you so much for having us at the Brian Skerry presentation.  I had a lot of fun.  I loved looking at the underwater photos and learning about the animals I have never heard of.  It was an amazing experience.”
Bailey, 4th Grade Student   

“I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for the tickets for the show on Tuesday night.  [The children] enjoyed the music and were very intrigued with the building.  It was a great experience for them.  Thanks so much for helping us with our mission!”
Cathy, Non-Profit Organization Program Director
