Message from the KCSA President s The Kansas City Symphony Alliance celebrates its 50th year, we welcome

A

you to the 42nd Symphony Designers’ Showhouse. This project, started in

1969, is the longest-running annual fundraising Showhouse in the country. This grand Sunset Hill home has something to celebrate this year, too. One hundred years ago, in 1911, groundbreaking began on this Westover landmark home. It was built for Dr. and Mrs. D. Walton Hall and was the family’s home for nearly 40 years. From the time you enter through the beautiful front door, with its intricate leaded glass trim, until you leave the house, you get a sense of Old World charm and attention to architectural detail. Take a peek out of the 100-year-old windows on the third floor, perhaps imagining yourself living in this elegant house. Stroll through the rose garden on the east lawn and let your senses soar. We hope that you enjoy your visit with us today. Our auxiliary, formed in 1961 as the Junior Women’s Philharmonic Association (JWPA), has adapted to many changes along the way. The Kansas City Philharmonic closed its doors in 1982. Soon the orchestra was reorganized as the Kansas City Symphony. This necessitated a name change for us, so we became the Junior Women’s Symphony Alliance (JWSA). In 2008, it was time to update again, so we opened our membership to men and women of all ages and emerged as the Kansas City Symphony Alliance (KCSA). This year marks another significant milestone for KCSA, as we expanded our ranks to welcome members of Friends of the Symphony (FoS) into the group. Since its inception, the Alliance has supported the Symphony by contributing more than $6.5 million. Your attendance at the Showhouse helps us meet our commitment to the Kansas City Symphony, an asset to the cultural life of Kansas City and the region. We thank you for coming and hope that you will come again next year. We thank the current homeowners, Mr. and Mrs. Anil Jagtiani, for entrusting us with their beautiful home. They have graciously assisted us in so many ways to help transform the house into the stunning Showhouse you see today. The Jagtianis, with their 15-year-old son, Kiran, have relocated to Philadelphia, Pa. We hope they can arrange a visit back to Kansas City while the Showhouse is open. Next, I would like to recognize our designers and landscapers. Where would we be without these talented people, who always manage to create the impossible? Their imaginative ideas and professional skills always amaze us, as somehow everything comes together as planned. Designers, you did an outstanding job! And last, but certainly not least, I would like to acknowledge members of KCSA, fellow Symphony auxiliary members, community volunteers, Kansas City Symphony staff and the patient Westover neighbors (who put up with our cars and trucks for months). Thank you all. Susann Shinkle, KCSA President

House History CONTINUED

Drawing of the house in 1912 (Kansas City Star) Courtesy of Mary Kay Horner

The Halls moved into the house in January 1912, and their son, Joshua, was born in May. As a teenager, he moved his bedroom to the third floor on the east side. His sister, Katherine (Kitty) Wagstaff, also grew up in the house. (Many of the female descendants of the Hall family bear the name Mary, Katherine, or a combination, in honor of Mary Katherine (Motter) Hall.) Back in the day, the master bedroom was on the second floor and featured a fireplace. A back bedroom is where Mrs. Hall spent her last days on a chaise lounge with a pink satin quilt, which is still in the family and lovingly cared for by her granddaughter Mary Kay Horner. She and her husband, Charles Horner, donated the George Caleb Bingham portraits of her ancestors Dr. John Sappington and his wife to The NelsonAtkins Museum of Art. Youngest granddaughter, Ruth Ann Hinsdale, inherited the tall case clock that sat at the foot of the stairs. Another granddaughter, Betsy Stopperan, recalls

sitting on her grandfather’s lap in a big Victorian chair in the library, Easter egg hunts and roller-skating on the front porch. The girls recall their grandmother’s love of Oriental rugs and overstuffed furniture as well as the sun porch (then sleeping rooms for the hot Kansas City summers) with its white wicker furniture where they played cards and games.

House History CONTINUED

Front of the house in the 1950s with “Woody” Courtesy of Randy Glasnapp

After Dr. Hall passed away, the Raymond Glasnapp family bought the house from his estate in 1950. Raymond and his wife, Erma, operated a private investigative service named for Lear B. Reid, former police chief and FBI agent. Glasnapp remembers the coal furnace, the chute and the brick-lined coal room in the basement, which is remarkably clean even today. He also remembers the old “woody” station wagon parked in front of the house. On a recent visit, he noticed that a doorway was closed off on the second floor on the north side, which used to link a small porch off a bedroom (minus the large closet it has today). Around 1955, the house was sold to Keith and Arlene Chasteen, who lived there with a son and three daughters until 1959 before being sold to Mrs. Adele McCarron, the widow of George McCarron, followed by Nick C. Spanos in 1961-62. From 1963-1992, Marion and Phyllis Trozzolo enjoyed the home with their seven children. Marion is probably best known for the “Happy Pan,” a Teflon-coated frying pan he unveiled in 1961. Although such pans had been selling in France since 1954, he was the first American to manufacture and market them in the U.S. One of the originals is in the Smithsonian. He also donated a Teflon PLEASE TURN THE PAGE

Andrea Trozzolo James was married at the home in 1979. (The picture above shows her coming down the staircase where her father is waiting.) She is now a teacher at Lincoln College Preparatory School and took 16 of her students to view the undecorated house to sketch some rooms for an interior design project. They will return to see the finished project.

Message from the Showhouse Vice President

elcome to the 42nd Symphony Designers’ Showhouse! We are

W

thrilled to have you experience the wonders of the many

talents within these walls. As many of you may know, this beautiful home was our 23rd Showhouse in 1992, and we are thrilled to revisit its grandeur. The hardwood floors, spacious rooms, charm, grace and natural light exhibit some of the warmth that you will feel as you tour the Showhouse. From the moment you enter, you’ll escape from the ordinary into the ultimate dreams of our designers, who have all come together to enhance the beauty of the 9-foot ceilings, well-proportioned rooms and understated elegance and grace of today’s most-wanted features. It has been my pleasure to guide and oversee the designers, workers, landscapers, painters and others as they came together to create this masterpiece. They have taken chances, tried new products and mixed things up in ways that produced terrific results for a place that feels “like home.” It has been my privilege to share with our members, friends and you, our patrons, the amazing work that has gone into the success of this Showhouse. I congratulate the designers on a job well done and am proud to say that the Showhouse has been represented by some of the finest designers in the Kansas City area. I feel fortunate and thankful for each and every one of you for your devotion to our project and our mission, which “promotes an interest in symphonic music throughout the Greater Kansas City area, and in particular, the welfare of the Kansas City Symphony, the Kansas City Symphony’s programming, young peoples’ concerts and youth activities through volunteerism, educational projects, social activities and fundraising projects.” I hereby devote this program book to the designers, supporters, advertisers, trade workers, members and friends who have given their time and products to the success of the 42nd Symphony Designers’ Showhouse! Thank you! Barbara Holzmark Showhouse Vice President

additional room can be found in the armoire and chest. The table in the center of the room comes in handy when

getting dressed or can be transformed into a desk area for a cozy home office, surrounded by comfortable seating for multiple guests. The cart next to the bath can be used as a coffee station, for evening cocktails, or for housing makeup and accessories. The anchor to this room is an antique hand-knotted rug with a center medallion. The rather formal pattern is less fussy because of the neutral color with the simple addition of an aqua blue, while a central chandelier and lamps make for a bright or romantic setting depending on the use of this multifunctional room.

An Asian version of a lambrequin frames the east window with oval fretwork mirroring that found in the paned glass on the south wall. An easel with canvas is in close proximity to the window nook, with a window seat that’s cushioned in a plush fabric with side bolsters.

homeowner, and they wanted it to stay that way. Working with Provencal blue and yellow and adding creamy

whites and a touch of green here and there created the perfect coloration. Pine furniture pieces, painted furniture touches and country checks add to the whimsical look that never goes out of style. A bit of history is found in the linens, purchased at a Paris flea market. The white hand-crafted “boutis” quilt was carried all the way back from Avignon. A matching piece was seen in Veranda magazine in 2007 in a home owned by fashion designer Adrienne Vittadini. The fireplace mantel is also French and complements the perfect window seat.

European reproduction table flanked by updated wingbacks. The chairs are covered in a linen fabric

stamped in French writer John-Paul Sartre’s quote that translates, “Even the most trivial event becomes an adventure when someone starts telling its story.” The six guest chairs are stylish splash backs in a whitewashed finish. Other eye-catching pieces include a standing beveled mirror, a bombe chest, and a serpentine, hand-carved console with cabriole legs and veneered lattice. Garden statuary in an aged stone finish accessorizes the room; it’s grounded by a richly textured, silvery sisal area rug. Framed Paris grid maps decorate the walls, while a bejeweled crystal chandelier etched in silver hangs from the metallic ceiling. Sumptuous silk cream draperies complete the design, blending vintage French with modern attitude.

Lighting is found in an overhead fixture and lamps around the room and can be adjusted according to how the room is used.

A local artist’s paper and metal wall sculpture complements the aesthetic of the room.

very year, the Symphony Showhouse is

E

a highlight in the season of the Kansas

City Symphony. It has evolved into more than just a tradition. The creativity and cooperation it represents is a wonderful reflection of the similar support that the Symphony is so fortunate to have among its volunteers. We continue to benefit from one of the most vibrant and devoted collection of volunteers that is without a doubt among the most successful and effective of any orchestra in our country. I hope that everyone will have a chance to pass through the Showhouse and view the fruits of the labor of so many talented people. I congratulate everyone involved, and I am personally honored and gratified to be part of such an energetic and essential organization as ours. Bravo to all!

These celebrated houses of music elevate and distinguish their cities; however, for musicians and music lovers, they are true destinations. To perform on their stages, extending legacies of some of the greatest music-making from across the centuries, or to hear a masterful performance as an audience member is special beyond words. It is the glorious acoustics of these great halls in which the magic lives, for music is only alive when the written notes on the page are given wing. From these stages, every note is enhanced by the clarity,

And for the listening audience, the nuance and inflection, the power and passion, the shouts and whispers of great music are all revealed in a way no stereo system or CD can ever replicate. And so it will be with our new Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts.

As we celebrate our inaugural season at the Kauffman Center, we also celebrate Kansas City and its identity as the “City of Fountains.” We will present three world premieres in our first season, all inspired by the gorgeous fountains of our city. Just as Respighi wrote his stunning Fountains of Rome, we will present three new works commissioned for our opening season by three marvelous composers: Stephen Hartke,
