Field Journal

Each year, the Symphony in the Flint Hills produces a new Field Journal that features in-depth articles and beautiful illustrations to commemorate the event's theme. Art, essays and poetry pay tribute to the Tallgrass Prairie and, in 2019, the land, the people and the future of the Kansas Flint Hills through a celebration of the transition of our North Star and the constellations.

What’s inside?


Choosing a location for the Signature Event is a tough decision we make each year. Once we select a ranch site, we set out to showcase the host community, the area’s history, and most importantly the Flint Hills around it.

Field Journals are available for purchase at our online store and at each Signature Event. Pick up a copy and learn why the Signature Event is where it is each year. Explore past editions online.
