Several hundred tickets remained unsold for the annual Symphony in the Flint Hills as of Wednesday afternoon.
The event, which in recent years has sold its entire supply of 5,500 tickets within hours, still had tickets available in both general admission and VIP areas three days after they went on sale, according to a Symphony spokesman.
The Kansas City Symphony has performed a program of music inspired by the prairie annually since 2006. This year’s concert will be held June 13 on private land near Strong City in Chase County, Kansas.
The nonprofit organization that runs the event has doubled ticket prices since 2006. General admission tickets cost $63 for adults and $43 for children. The ticket is good for admission to the entire day’s activities, including lectures, educational activities, covered-wagon rides, walking tours and post-concert activities including stargazing with telescopes and dancing to the music of a traditional western band. The Symphony ticket office is at 816-471-0400 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and online at http://kcsymphony.org/. More information about the event is at http://www.symphonyintheflinthills.org/.
