I took a well-deserved day off on Saturday, June 11, 2011 and joined my family at the Symphony in the Flint Hills. This was the sixth annual concert by the Kansas City Symphony and was located in Volland, Kansas. The event also featured arts and crafts, horse-drawn wagon rides, an instrument petting zoo, nature walks, history lessons, storytelling, and western dancing. The symphony played several selections such as How the West Was Won, “Tara’s Theme”, and “Home on the Range” from a makeshift amphitheater in the middle of the prairie for 7,000 people.
