The Kansas City Music Hall was first opened in 1936 as part of the three-building Municipal Auditorium and is designed as an Art Deco style proscenium theater. Home to the Kansas City Philharmonic for many decades, it is now a popular venue for Broadway shows, touring symphony orchestras, opera and ballet companies and other special events. The Music Hall is home to a 1927 Robert-Morton Theatre Pipe Organ that was originally in the Midland Theatre; there are only around 30 of these type organs currently installed in the US. The Music Hall also possesses beautiful Art Deco lighting fixtures, a gold Art Deco chandelier, an elaborate 3,600-square-foot lobby and a grand staircase. Many popular Broadway shows have been presented here, such as Wicked,Hamilton and War Horse. Guest performers have included Michael Carbonaro (The Carbonaro Effect), and the Music Hall has hosted many special events like the Geekcraft Expo and The U.S. Finals cheer and dance competition.
