South Kansas Symphony to present 'Pictures at an Exhibition'

The South Kansas Symphony, Inc. (SKS) will perform its 2023-24 season finale on Sunday,

April 28 at 3pm in Richardson Performing Arts Center (RPAC) at Southwestern College. The

concert is sponsored by Larry & Linda Hahn.

The performance will highlight movements from Pictures at an Exhibition, Modest

Mussorgsky’s musical journey inspired by a friend’s paintings, and Aaron Copland’s Fanfare

for the Common Man, a stirring piece known for its triumphant brass and soaring melodies.

The concert will also feature Ravel's Pavane for a Dead Princess, and Miller's Wildwood

Overture. Symphony conductor Dr. Michael Christensen says the concert will pay homage

to the core memories many musicians have of hearing certain pieces like Pictures for the

first time. Sunday’s concert is “intended to be a reflection of those moments we remember

while making space for the creation of new memories we make together.”

Tickets are $10 and may be purchased online at or at the RPAC Box Office before the performance. Children under 12 years of age are free with an adult, and

Southwestern College, Cowley College, and PreK-12 students, staff, and faculty may attend for

free with their school ID.

Southwestern College is also providing an on-campus shuttle service for the performance.

Concert attendees may park in the Circle Drive (bottom of 77 steps), the ADA parking area east of Stewart Field House, or the parking area east of the White PE Building/Indoor Swimming Pool. A bus will pick up guests before the performance and return guests to their cars afterward.

Members of the symphony include Southwestern College and Cowley College students and

alumni, community members, and high school students. They represent Winfield, Arkansas City, and surrounding communities like Belle Plaine, Derby, Dexter, Wellington, and Wichita.
