About the Event

Play your Part and join Heartland Chamber Music at our annual Stringfest where we combine the music and history of the KC West Bottoms with a lively party, all in support of String Sprouts. 


The Golden Ox patio behind the historic Livestock Exchange Building is the backdrop for this kick-off event where guests can enjoy live jazz by legendary artists Bobby Watson and  Gerald Dunn.


And this year you will hear our String Sprouts perform live and in person!


Beer, wine, and tacos.   Exciting silent auction items complete the event!   

We have moved the event to October and outdoors for the safety of our guests. While tables are available, each table will only seat 4 individuals and they should be from the same households or group. While masks are not required outdoors, please bring one to wear  when our Sprouts perform and to go inside to view the auction items (groups of 10 will be allowed in the building). They should also be worn when not seated and eating and drinking. This pandemic has put a strain on our ability to teach and perform, and while this is an inconvenience we need your support now more than ever.

The Event’s Goals

Our goal is simple.  Raise $25,000 to purchase 100 violins (at cost) to serve more deserving Sprouts students. Sprouts provides instruments and five years of lessons free of charge to bring equity to music education in K.C. Music education opens doors. As one Sprout parent said: "The best part about participating in the program is the feeling that they are getting a head start not just in music but in life."


Each year we use Giving Tuesday… or as we like to call it, Giving Violins Day, to raise monies to purchase violins.  Stringfest is the kick-off event for our campaign. It’s fun, it’s lively and we invite you to join us and                                    !
