Arrive Early for Concert Talks
If you’d like to learn more about the music in our concert programs, Concert Talks are just what you need! Before every Classics Concert, the Wichita Symphony Orchestra will present pre-concert talks which help prepare you and deepen your understanding of the music to be performed in the program. Sometimes our guest soloists even join Maestro Hege for a discussion of their concerto collaboration! Free to all ticket holders, Concert Talks take place in the Concert Hall one hour prior to each Classics performance.
