Symphony in the Flint Hills has cancelled for the second year in a row, this time due to COVID-19.
The event had been scheduled for June 13 in Wabaunsee County. The event typically unites 7,000 people from across the country on a private pasture in the Flint Hills for prairie walks, inspirational talks, cowboy poetry and a sunset concert performed by the Kansas City symphony.
“The decision to cancel the 2020 Signature Event is heartbreaking, but the health and well-being of our audience, performers, and the communities of Wabaunsee County and the Flint Hills region are of utmost importance to us,” said Leslie VonHolten, executive director of Symphony in the Flint Hills.
All general admission tickets will be refunded through EventBrite by May 30. Ticketholders also have the option of donating the cost of their ticket as a gift to the Symphony in the Flint Hills to help alleviate the financial impact the cancellation has made on the organization’s financial health. To do so, email info@symphonyintheflinthills by May 15 or call 620-273-8955.
Last year’s show was also cancelled due to severe weather.
