Don’t miss this kick-off event to the 17th season as we celebrate the light Te Deum’s music brings to Kansas City. Lumine is Te Deum’s single largest annual fundraiser, providing direct support to our singers.

Lumine 2024 has a new format, giving you an expanded concert and dining experience. The evening will start with beer and wine and a concert by Te Deum in Café Sebastienne. All sponsors and premium ticket holders are then invited to stay and enjoy a seated dinner with Te Deum singers in the museum’s Atrium alongside stunning contemporary art.

Attending Lumine is an opportunity to be the first of Te Deum’s supporters to hear our professional singers as they launch the ensemble’s 17th season.
