Enjoy a Wichita Symphony Orchestra presentation at Century II of two musical masterpieces composed under authoritarian governments where the threat of artistic and political censorship existed. Dmitri Shostakovich's Symphony No. 10 takes us through a journey of determination in the face of oppression under Soviet leader Joseph Stalin. The Symphony is said to even include a malevolent musical caricature of the dictator himself. Like the legendary phoenix, the works of Bradbury, Mozart, and Shostakovich contain lessons of hope for all humankind.
Tickets are available for $20-$65.
