In Sunday’s (2/22) Wichita Eagle (Kansas), Chris Shull writes that, despite economic troubles throughout the arts industry, “there’s good news in Wichita. So far, local economic contractions have not translated to rollbacks at the Wichita Symphony Orchestra. The ensemble’s 2009-2010 classics concert season shows no reduction in concerts or radical changes in programming. The next classical concert season will have eight pairs of concerts, the same as in this and past seasons. Programs will feature a mix of symphonies, concertos and overtures by brand-name composers—with a couple of interesting ventures into new and seldom-heard music. … Next season will be [Music Director Andrew] Sewell’s last with the orchestra; he’ll conduct seven of the eight programs. … The new season will begin Oct. 3-4 with Lilya Zilberstein playing Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3. It will conclude April 10-11, 2010, with Sewell conducting Brahms’ A German Requiem. Tracy Silverman will return with his electric violin Jan. 16-17 to play the world premiere of a self-penned work (as yet untitled) commissioned by the Wichita Symphony and also his ‘Anthem 25,’ written for Sewell and the Madison Chamber Orchestra.”
