The sixth annual Invitational Orchestra Festival brings to the Wichita State campus 12 outstanding string ensembles from Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma. Each orchestra will perform a concert of two or three selections, at which point Dr. Mark Laycock, WSU Director of Orchestras, will rehearse the students to help improve such ensemble issues as tone quality, intonation, rhythm and musicianship. Each orchestra will also receive written comments from faculty members representing the areas of music education and strings. The WSU Symphony Orchestra will present a brief showcase performance beginning at 1:45 p.m. Participating high schools include Hickman (Columbia, MO), Eisenhower (Goddard), Goddard, Wichita East, Wichita South, Hays, Salina Central, Derby, Washburn Rural and Edison (Tulsa, OK).
