Wichita is the largest city in Kansas and the cultural hub of our region. Here, graduate
students take advantage of the hands-on experiences only a large and vibrant musical
community can provide.
Our city is home to the Wichita Symphony Orchestra, a professional subscription orchestra with a historic relationship with the School
of Music. Most of our instrumental faculty serve as principal players. Our opera department
works with notable Wichita institutions including Music Theater of Wichita, Kansas' largest subscription arts organization; Opera Kansas and Wichita Grand Opera, which brings world-famous singers to community audiences.
Wichita also has the largest school district in the state of Kansas, and our music
education programs have a proven track record of exceptional academic interaction
and career placement.
