Symphony in the Gardens

May 14 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

| $35
Join us for Symphony in the Gardens, a concert event in support of Botanica and the Wichita Symphony on Friday, May 14 from 6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
Symphony in the Gardens will offer a progressive style concert experience with small groups of WSO musicians playing throughout Botanica’s various gardens. The evening will end with a bang as everyone gathers on the Grand Lawn for a performance featuring the Wichita Symphony’s Brass and Percussion musicians conducted by Music Director Daniel Hege, complete with fireworks as the finale of the evening.
Tickets will be sold in three tiers:
•$35 “Seed” tickets provide access to the gardens, cash bars, dessert trucks and general lawn seating.
•$75 “Blossom” tickets come with a boxed picnic dinner, two drink tickets and access to chairs for the Grand Lawn concert.
•$150 VIP “Bloom” tickets (limited quantity) come with early access to the gardens, open bars, a pre-concert patio hour featuring cheese from Elderslie Farm and wine from Jenny Dawn Cellars, and a delicious dinner and dessert served on site by Georges French Bistro, including terrace seating with tables.
The Grand Lawn can safely host 1,000 socially distanced people. Pandemic protocols, such as mask-wearing (exceptions made while consuming food and beverages) and social distancing, will be observed. “Seed” ticket attendees are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets for the final performance. A rain date of May 21 has been set should inclement weather arise.
In a season riddled with concert cancellations due to the pandemic, the WSO has been eagerly seeking outdoor performance opportunities for warmer weather. Enter Botanica with a welcome phone call last fall: their long dreamt of amphitheater would be ready for performances in spring 2021.
Tickets are sold online only!
