What's interesting about these concerts?
The Dream Team – For Bach’s Concerto for Two Violins, we welcome the WSO’s new Concertmaster, Holly Mulcahy, and one of Wichita’s very own, Associate Concertmaster Timothy Jones to the front of the stage. After they perform Bach, you’ll see them on the first stand leading the Orchestra in Bruckner’s Sixth Symphony.
LIVING Composer Alert – Jessie Montgomery is the first of several living composers you can experience this season, and her energetic “Starburst” is the first piece out of the gate. Read up on this exciting composer at jessiemontgomery.com.
Bruckner? I Hardly Knew ‘er! You probably are not very familiar with 19th-Century composer Anton Bruckner (a tip of the hat to you if you are). Pro tip: Bruckner symphonies are larger than life in the best way. So, buckle up, and be ready for the Orchestra’s towering sound to take you on an awesome ride!

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 Masterworks 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 Masterworks performance.
