We’re circling the wagons, and transporting the entire Symphony to Wichita Heights High School, home of the Falcons. Join us in the Heights auditorium for the same great programing from Saturday’s concert at Century II.
On this concert, you’ll hear Old Cowtown Suite, written by film composer George S. Clinton, and inspired by ICT’s own Old Cowtown Museum. A visit to Cowtown in 2019 sparked Clinton’s creativity, and what followed was a brand new piece in six movements, exploring the Chisholm Trail, Cowtown’s historic church and jail-house, a run-down nickelodeon, the sounds of the printshop and blacksmith, a visit with Rosie the cow, and prairie life in the late 1800s. Also on the concert – WSO principal clarinetist Trevor Stewart performs Copland’s Clarinet Concerto, and the Symphony performs a French-inspired work by a twenty-five year old American composer: Quinn Mason’s Petite Symphonie.
Ticket sales proceeds (net of taxes and fees) for this concert will be split between the Wichita Symphony and the Wichita Heights High School Fine Arts Department. Please join us for this unique opportunity to see the Symphony and support public school arts education. We’re ready to be BETTER TOGETHER, ONCE AGAIN.
