Lyle Lovett to Return as Guest Artist for the Symphony in the Flint Hills Tenth Anniversary Signature Event
Tickets go on sale Saturday, March 7
Four-time Grammy award-winning artist Lyle Lovett will perform with the Kansas City Symphony at the Symphony in the Flint Hills Tenth Anniversary Signature Event on June 13, 2015.
“We are excited to celebrate our tenth anniversary with expanded music and education programs celebrating this year’s theme, ‘Grasslands of the World,’” said Christy Davis, Executive Director of the Symphony in the Flint Hills, Inc. “It is an honor to feature an artist who shares our passion for the tallgrass prairie."
Lyle Lovett was raised on his family’s horse ranch in Klein, Texas and still lives on part of the original homestead today. The singer/songwriter and actor isn’t a stranger to the Kansas Flint Hills. Lovett visited the area in 2000 to film The Last Stand of the Tallgrass Prairie, a documentary he hosted, and he was the guest artist of the Fifth Anniversary Signature Event in 2010.
This year’s Signature Event will take place at the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve where it debuted in 2006. Symphony in the Flint Hills is partnering with The Nature Conservancy to feature speakers who showcase this year’s theme.
Tickets for the 2015 Symphony in the Flint Hills Signature Event will go on sale at 10 a.m., Saturday, March 7. General admission tickets are $90 for adults and $50 for children under 12. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
