The Kansas City arts community will celebrate the life of Joette Pelster on Monday, December 19, 2022. Joette's impact on the performing arts in Kansas City was immense and longlasting, both as a colleague and a friend to many artists, administrators, philanthropists, and audience members. She was a source of strength and wisdom, hilarity and guidance, confidence and warmth for all who knew her. Join us in honoring her life and legacy with those who respected and loved her.
