Signature Event

The Signature Event is an annual gathering on the prairie celebrating music, art, and the ecology of the Flint Hills.


2021 Major Presenting Sponsor

As a Major Presenting Sponsor for Symphony in the Flint Hills through 2021, BNSF Railway is honored this year to celebrate Stone in the Flint Hills. Shallow deposits of limestone, the foundation rock in the Flint Hills, are a critical element of prairie conservation, thus preserving the rich ecological diversity. BNSF’s commitment is strong in Kansas, partnering to build the state’s economy by accessing markets around the world. BNSF is proud to partner with Symphony in the Flint Hills to educate and celebrate the role of stone in protecting the prairie.

– Zak Andersen, President BNSF Railway Foundation
