culture meets nature

We had the privilege of being invited to go to the symphony in the Flint Hills with some friends of ours. Every year for the past 5 years they put on this symphony in some pasture in the Flint Hills and sell a limited number of tickets...I believe it was 6,000. Apparently, when the tickets go on sale, they sell out within 2 hours. Some friends of ours got 6 tickets, and so nicely asked if we would like to go! We may not be the biggest symphony "go-ers"...but it was pretty amazing sitting there in the wide open space of Kansas listening to the music. Before the concert they drove us around the hills...it didn't seem like we were in Kansas with all the green, rolling hills, and trees.






It was hard to grasp how it really was...but they were about 6,000 people on the side of a slope in a pasture with the symphony in the tent at the bottom.



Ivan and Ashley Moore...the super nice friends that took us with them. You might be able to get a small glimpse of the average age by looking at a few of the surrounding people in the picture....
