Wichita Wurlitzer presents "Instruments of Peace"

Date: March 21, 2019,
Venue: Century II Performing Arts & Convention Center - 225 W. Douglas Ave., Wichita

The Event:

Instruments of Peace is a collaboration of ARISE Ensemble and Wichita Wurlitzer. The evening’s goal is to foster unity using music, a medium that transcends the barriers of culture, language, and geography. The program will feature music rooted in our nation’s history providing a common foundation to move forward in peace.

ARISE Ensemble, (African-Americans Renewing Interest in Spirituals Ensemble) is comprised of music and history-minded individuals, For the past 30 years ARISE has kept alive the almost forgotten songs of their forefathers and mothers. These songs, and the stories that accompany them, chronicle the struggles, conflicts, secret communications, and victories of a people who refused to be extinguished.

The Wichita Wurlitzer, originally installed at the "Crossroads of the World" in the Times Square New York Paramount Theatre in 1926, came to Wichita in 1968.  2019 is the Wichita Wurlitzer's 51st year in in the heart of America.  Of more than 10,000 instruments built, Wichita is home to the finest example ever conceived and achieved.
