May 29 Update

Wichita Symphony cancels previously postponed concerts from March - May, 2020.

From Don Reinhold, Wichita Symphony CEO

This is a letter I had hoped would not be written.

The Wichita Symphony's Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel our previously postponed concerts from March, April, and May. Our hope had been to reschedule our performances of Ravel & Brahms (March 14 and 15), The Rose of Sonora (April 4 and 5), Apollo 13 in Concert (April 18), and Kristin Chenoweth in Concert -- For the Girls (May 16) for a late SummerFest in August. Out of concern for the safety and health of our patrons, musicians, and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, we regretfully cannot perform these concerts at this time and will attempt to program them in a future season.

For Ticketholders:

On Monday, June 1, the Symphony Box Office will begin notifying ticketholders with instructions and ticket options. Please watch your email. Since Century II remains closed to the public, ticket resolutions will be done 1) Online (the preferred method) or 2) Calling the Box Office at (316) 267-7658 and leaving a voicemail.

Current box office hours are Monday - Thursday, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Our box office staff will respond to your inquiries at their earliest availability. Please be patient as we work through the process.

Please consider a donation of your tickets to the Symphony.

April 17 Update

From Don Reinhold, Wichita Symphony Society CEO

 Friday the 13th in March certainly lived up to its superstitious reputation when County health officials shut down public gatherings in the face of the spreading coronavirus. All of us deeply missed being with you for the postponed concerts of that weekend and since. Since the County closed Century II entirely, my staff and I have been working from home, maintaining business, and communicating with each other, the Board of Directors, and the musicians with the help of Zoom meetings.

We simply don’t know how long it will be before we gather again to enjoy the life-affirming performances of the Wichita Symphony. Your safety and health, as well as that of our musicians and staff, are our priority. One thing I do know:

The Wichita Symphony will be back!

March 18 Update

Wichita Symphony postpones remainder of 2019-2020 Season amidst COVID-19 concerns.

From Don Reinhold, Wichita Symphony Society CEO

My first wish is that everyone remains in good health. In this time of great unknowns and uncertainty, information and events are coming at warp speed. Where we are today would have been unimaginable just a week ago. As you might have deduced from the statewide public gathering ban of groups in excess of fifty that currently extends for eight weeks in Kansas, the Wichita Symphony must postpone the remainder of our 2019 – 2020 season. In addition to last weekend’s concerts of Ravel and Brahms, we are now postponing The Rose of Sonora (April 4 and 5), Apollo 13 In Concert (April 18), and Kristin Chenoweth In Concert (May 16).
