This is a wonderful group of musicians, led by one of the best conductors. I usually go or am invited to attend with a friend on a monthly basis. Next month the orchestra will host public schools for three days.

I was surprised to see that Wichita has this quality of culture here. Don't miss out on a ballet or opera while you have a chance. It was well worth the time.

It is always a long walk to get there. The events that are booked are limited. The parking is limited and the elderly have a difficult time unless they are dropped off in front
