Winfield Regional Symphony to open season


The Winfield Regional Symphony will make their debut performance of the 2006-07 season in the Orpheum Theatre in Wichita, Sunday, October 8 at 7 p.m.

"Face: The Music, A Symphony of Masks" will feature over 20 masked characters that Canadian mask-maker Rob Faust has created, along with music composed for the symphony by Gary Gackstatter. Ranging from animals to humanoid creatures, the show is unpredictable and fun for the whole family.

Combining masks with music seems natural to Gackstatter, who has written five symphonies which also combine various arts with music.

The WRS has performed many times in Wichita, both at the Art Museum and The Orpheum, including the Wichita Jazz Festival and performances with Paul Winter, John McCutcheon and the cast of "To Kill A Mockingbird".

Tickets are $10 at Select A Seat outlets or at the door.
