Concert Choir at Kauffman Center

Sunday, 26 April | 7:00PM 

Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts | 1601 Broadway Blvd.  | Kansas City, Mo. 64108

We are excited for the Concert Choir's upcoming performance of the Dona Nobis Pacem at the Kauffman Center with the Benedictine College Choir and Village Presbyterian Church Chamber Choir.

Order free tickets: https://tickets.kauffmancenter.org/single/EventDetail.aspx?p=8789

While tickets are free, you should reserve tickets before the performance.

Some seats may open right before the performance begins, but this event typically sells out. Note that, upon purchase, Kauffman Center will ask if you wish to add a "donation" to your ticket.  This donation would go to the Kauffman Center, NOT to the Village Church charity which benefits from our concert. A retiring offering will be taken for the Dominican Republic Medical Partnership at the concert.

Attendees may wish to prepurchase parking vouchers for the Kauffman parking garage ($8 per car). If there are multiple events at the Kauffman that night, the parking garage can sell out unless you already have a voucher when you arrive. More information about the concert can be found at the church website: http://villagepres.org/worship-music/music-ministry/upcoming-music-events/
