A concert of epic proportions, Holst’s The Planets is performed with cosmic images from NASA and astronomer José Francisco Salgado projected above the Orchestra. The Classics season ends with Respighi’s mammoth Pines of Rome for a triumphant finale.

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.
