The Wichita Symphony Orchestra will host performances in city parks this fall, beginning Saturday.
Smaller ensembles comprised of Wichita Symphony musicians will perform on Saturday and Oct. 3 for its Playing Across the Parks series. It’s a partnership with the Wichita Park and Recreation department.
There will be six free performances each day at parks across the city.
People attending must follow COVID-19 guidelines, including wearing masks and observing 6-feet of social distancing.
In addition to the concerts in the park, the symphony also will host three in-person concerts at Century II this fall. A limited number of tickets will be available.
The symphony also unveiled WSO Connect, a digital membership that allows subscribers to view performances on-demand from home.
