Founded in 1944, the Wichita Symphony Orchestra seamlessly sews together the musical prowess of more than 80 performers to spellbind ears with classics, pops, and special concerts. This February, Sibelius’s Violin Concerto leaps to life in the hands of violinist Chee-Yun, whose flawless technique has enchanted audiences on five continents and in several hot air balloons. Upon her 1990 debut at age 18, Chee-Yun’s playing was praised by the New York Times for its “smooth, gorgeously focused tone”. Mozart’s turbulent, emotional Symphony no. 40 and Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin round out the trio of works with its aural voyage through soaring peaks and valleys. After undergoing a major makeover in 2010, Century II’s Concert Hall struts its new look for nearly 2,200 guests and stowaways hiding out in the orchestra’s cellos.
