Symphony in the Flint Hills

The town of Matfield Green breathed a collective sigh of relief as the Symphony in the Flint Hills went off without a hitch. Saturday afternoon found close to 7000 people at the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve in Strong City. The Kansas City Symphony and Chorus along with the Paul Winter Consort performed Grasslands: Prairie Voices as the hot hot sun sank slowly in the west. Kathy and Phil Miller and Elaine Hunter of our fair city were the brains and braun behind the whole venture, working and worrying and raising money for more than two years in order to pull off this miracle. Governor Kathleen Sebelius welcomed everyone to the concert and Bill was all excited because at intermission we met cattle mogul Ed Bass - until now a kind of superhuman force from Texas who could be our prime competition for the Rogler Ranch. It's good to put a face to the challenge. Here's the link to more about the Symphony.
