TOPEKA (KSNT) – The Sunflower Music Festival returns this year after a year off because of the pandemic.

The annual music festival is held in White Concert Hall on the Washburn University campus and invites musicians from all across the country who perform different pieces of music each night over a 10-day span. The theme for this year’s festival is “Women in Music” in which they will honor female composers, leaders, and soloists.

Monday’s performance honored Liz Stratton, a Topeka Philanthropist who had supported the Sunflower Music Festival for many years.

Monday evening’s musicians included:

  • Joe Cartwright on piano
  • Rod Fleeman on guitar
  • Ben Leifer on bass
  • Michael Warren on drums
  • Deborah Brown on vocals
