About Ross Wright
A brief description about myself: I’m a freelance musician: composer, arranger, conductor, bassist, author, radio personality, and the creator of the Orchestre Surreal where I use the pseudonym Elvis Schoenberg, it’s a 30 piece orchestra where I mash classic rock songs with iconic classical, jazz, and film music. the group performs regularly throughout southern California. I’ve been the recipient of several awards including: Best Orchestral Arranger: LA Music Awards Best Music Direction, For Frank Zappa’s “Joe’s Garage” by The Ticket Holder’s Awards. Best Composition at the American-Romanian Music Days Festival. I’ve written music for films, television, and the stage. My concert music has been performed internationally by various chamber music groups. My ‘Concerto for Tenor Saxophone and Orchestra” was recently recorded by the Chamber Orchestra at St. Matthew’s and put to video, and was up for Grammy consideration: Also a novelist, my first published work, a sci-fi novel “Falling From Eden, Inc.” After receiving the runner up in the sci-fi category at the Los Angeles Book Festival and the first honorable mention at the New England book festival. It made it onto the Amazon international bestseller list: I’m also an exercise junky, I workout daily and I teach group fitness classes at Gold’s Gym. I've traveled all over the world usually with bands or various music gigs. So often my stay was short. I like learning about the history of places and the weirder and more tumultuous the stories the better. I remember going to Malta that had a surprisingly interesting history.

Why Ross Wright chose Northeast Kansas City
Why this property? When I first saw this property I thought what a fantastic place. Even though it was in need of a lot of repair, It had such an amazing character that I wanted to see it brought back to life and have it flourish again. It took a lot of work, and we are still constantly improving things. It’s an awesome house that was built by the finest craftsmen of their day. There are all kinds of hidden gems, the leaded glass windows, the wood floors that in some rooms are all one plank long and have no seams.
What makes this Estate unique
The house is large and gives families and groups the opportunity to all congregate and experience being together in one place and still have a lot of space to do separate activities. The patio has a BBQ and is a nice place to be when the weather is nice. When the weather gets colder there are seven fireplaces: five downstairs and two upstairs in each of the corner bedrooms. In the parlor is a piano for the musically inclined. There is an indoor putting green if you want to practice your short game. In general it’s a fun space to be in.

More than expected
We had an absolute blast at the mansion. The management was so fantastic to work with. There was more than enough room for all of us and truly couldn't have had a better time!
We had a wedding locally and many of us were from out of town, this was a great space for us to stay together. Beautiful property! The entrance to the neighborhood looked a little sketchy and I probably wouldn’t go out walking the area but the property itself has plenty of space inside and outside on a safe street. We really enjoyed the stay!
Enjoyed our stay!
Love the house & property. We were able to bring together family for our daughter’s wedding. We had the best time!!
This house was absolutely stunning. All of our accommodations were met and we will definitely be back.
This house is amazing! Uniques spaces, plenty of bedrooms for our group of 10. If you're hosting a murder mystery dinner party, this is the absolutely the place to do it.
Perfect spot for a large group.
We had a group of 10 that were in town for the Big 12 Basketball tournament and could not have had a better place to stay. Easy access to the Sprint Center and the Power and Light District. Would definitely recommend Ross’s place for your next trip to KC.
