Christmas Caroling Caravan
With the recent significant spike in Covid-19 cases, the Wichita Grand Opera has made the difficult decision to cancel our upcoming “A Kansas Christmas” concerts. These concerts, that we have long looked forward to, will now be presented in December 2021. At this time, it is important that we look after one another and do all that we can to protect our audience members as well as the artists involved. For those of you already holding tickets for these concerts, please call our office at 316.683.3444 for exchanges, donations, and other options.
We are pleased to inform you that the music is not being silenced. The Wichita Grand Opera will be sending singers to perform at the annual Botanica Christmas Illuminations on December 14th (7:30 pm) and 21st (7:00 pm). In addition, we know that it is important for our most vulnerable to be hearing live music. The WGO is sending singers to various elder care facilities throughout Wichita over the coming weeks to bring holiday cheer to the residents. It is so very important to provide music that heals and inspires during these times. If you would like to help sponsor these “caroling caravans”, please contact us at 316.683.3444 so that we can register your financial support.
Finally, perhaps you’d like to have carolers visit your home for a little outdoor holiday cheer. Just call the Wichita Grand Opera Christmas Carol Caravan. Our carolers are available, for a donation of $25 per carol, to visit your own yard to sing carols and other holiday music. What a great way to bring music to your neighborhood during the dark December nights. Call soon to reserve your personal mini-concerts in the comfort of your own safe space. Caroling dates are being scheduled between December 7-20.
Merry Christmas to all…Be safe…Be healthy!
