This season Wichita Symphony Orchestra will feature beloved artists who are returning to Wichita, such as pianist Stephen Hough, and rising stars performing for the first time in the Heart of the Country. This season will also pay tribute to one of America’s most revered composers, John Williams, who has been nominated for 53 Oscars, winning five.

The symphony touts the biggest band in Wichita with the largest array of musical talent. Visitors might be surprised to experience how interactive each performance is, as well as the breadth of the compositions. The 2023-24 season includes seven Masterworks concerts and one Pops concert, plus a variety of special events. Single tickets are available for most performances and packages range from season tickets to a three-concert package starting at $75.
