Wichita Symphony To Perform In City Parks

Sep 21, 2020

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.
