FORWARD ... MARCH! Symphony in the Flint
Hills is proud to announce that the 2013 concert
will be held at the Historic Post of Fort Riley!
The Great American West was first experienced by travelers, tradesmen, and pioneers who either passed through or settled in the Flint Hills. Fort Riley was established in the Flint Hills as a protector of those who traveled west and of the Indian peoples whose lands were being crossed, thus becoming an integral part of Flint Hills history.
This year presents a rare opportunity to explore, in an intimate way, the place that was so significant in the early life of our country. Attendees will be surrounded by the largest contiguous example of Flint Hills vernacular architecture remaining today. After strolling the tree-lined streets of 19th century limestone buildings, along the Cavalry Parade Field, and through the Cavalry Museum, concert-goers will settle onto the Artillery Parade Field for an extraordinary evening of music by the Kansas City Symphony on the very land that our forbearers crossed in our country’s great westward expansion.
