Sunflower Soiree 2022

Sunflower Performing Arts at Hesston College (SPA) will kick off its 2022-23 season with the Sunflower Soirée, a free concert that will include local and regional professional musicians. The Sunflower Soirée will take place at 3 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 11, at Hesston Mennonite Church.

This year the featured artists are: soprano Carren Moham, pianist Mei Li, Salina Symphony Brass Quintet, Outside the Bach(s) composed of violinist Joan Griffing and clarinetist Leslie Nicholas, and Brain Flowers, a trio of flutist Kenna Graber, violinist Rebecca Schloneger and cellist Seth Girton.

“We received such positive feedback about the Sunflower Soirée from our audience last year,” SPA Director Holly Swartzendruber notes, “and we are thrilled to present more wonderful local artists. It will be an outstanding afternoon of music.”

Season tickets may be purchased or picked up at the concert. A tax-deductible donation can be made to Sunflower Performing Arts as well. Light refreshments will be served following the concert.

Currently masks are optional, but as the series complies with the masking policies of both Hesston College and Hesston Mennonite Church, audience members should be prepared to wear a mask if required.

Information about the Sunflower Performing Arts 2022-23 season will be shared during this performance as well.
