A Benefit for the UMKC Conservatory

Crescendo is one of Kansas City's premier arts events, hosted by the UMKC Conservatory. The event has raised millions of dollars for student scholarships with support from generous donors and under the guidance of the Friends of the Conservatory.

Crescendo 2020 is Friday, Nov. 6.

As the spread of COVID-19 continues to impact us all during these challenging times, it is more important than ever that we unite in raising funds to assist our students. Therefore, we are moving forward with our plans! In consideration of the health and safety of our patrons and performers, we will present a HYBRID EVENT featuring streamed viewing of exciting and inspiring live student performances. Though we are modifying Crescendo 2020, our cause remains and need grows stronger.

We hope you will join us by becoming a sponsor of Crescendo 2020 and investing in the success of the students of UMKC Conservatory.

“Without this generosity, I wouldn’t be attending the school I’ve dreamt of attending since 7th grade. I appreciate all of your support in helping students like me to attain our goals.” – Ethan, string bass ’21

Help us continue to support Ethan and the hundreds of UMKC Conservatory students like him – they are the future of the arts in Kansas City and beyond.


Sincerely,
