Dear Educator:

The Topeka Symphony is pleased to announce our 18th annual SCHOOL DAY CONCERTS on Wednesday, February 15, 2017. The Topeka Symphony Orchestra will again present two performances designed for 5th through 8th grade students. The hour-long concerts will be at 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. at the Topeka Performing Arts Center. The theme of each one-hour concert will be “Out of This World” and will include selections from “The Planets” by Gustav Holst as well as popular film soundtracks including “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Battlestar Galactica,” and “Star Trek.” TSO Music Director and Conductor Kyle Wiley Pickett has fun, interactive elements planned for he students attending the concert.
Through the generous support of the BNSF Railway Foundation, Kaw Valley Bank, Target, Cox Communications, Kansas Gas Service (A Division of ONE Gas), Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation, Security Benefit, and Westar Foundation we are again able to present these concerts at no charge to the schools or students.
