Wichita Pops: The Texas Tenors
The Wichita Symphony Orchestra added a bonus Pops concert to this season featuring The Texas Tenors, an eclectic trio of cowboy-hat-wearing, opera-crooning vocalists who are making headlines as “the most successful vocal group to come out of NBC’s hit show America’s Got Talent,” according to the Symphony’s Marketing and Public Relations Manager Arleigh Aldrich. “They are a big name and travel all over the world. When we found out one of the members, JC Fisher, was a graduate of the Wichita State University School of Music, the mix of talent and hometown connection was too good to pass up.”
Joining the orchestra and maestro Daniel Hege, February 28 at Century II Concert Hall, the Tenors will brandish their signature blend of pop, country, classical, Broadway and opera. Tight harmonies and classically-trained voices are the common threads weaving through these diverse styles to create an unforgettable evening.
“We will have someone on electric bass and keyboard while The Texas Tenors provide their own drummer and guitarist.” — Arleigh Aldrich
Women’s Fair 2013
Watch a fashion show, get a new hairdo, discover a new cooking technique, catch a concert — these are just a few activities at the 2013 Women’s Fair. And that doesn’t even include the sold-out roster of 385 vendors jostling for position at Century II’s Expo hall February 15-17.
At the Business Workshop, Friday at 3:00, Madeline Alexander, The Power Coach, will reveal how to “Break Through Barriers and Achieve Power Results.“ A KU grad, Alexander received accolades for her business leadership with companies such as Microsoft, Boeing, and the US Air Force before pursuing a career as a personal and executive coach, keynote speaker and author.
Saturday afternoon at 2:30, Diane Sieg, author of Stop Living Life Like an Emergency! will speak on the topic, “Chaos to Calm” — and who would know better than this “ER nurse turned yogi”? In a time of transition and pressure, this presentation “supports you in setting an intention and how to focus on it — with remarkable results.”
“There are always new things to see, to do and to learn.” — Chris Brown, Managing Partner
