KSO presents Sir John Tomlinson in a concert in memory of Leslie Head

Bass: Sir John Tomlinson

Welcome to KSO

In over half a century of music-making, Kensington Symphony Orchestra has built an enviable reputation as one of the UK's most accomplished and adventurous non-professional orchestras. Established classics, neglected masterpieces and works of today's leading composers are all hallmarks of KSO's repertoire, all performed with a skill and panache that has garnered praise from all quarters.

KSO's 59th season begins on Monday 13 October 2014 with Rachmaninov's The Isle of the Dead, Debussy's La Mer and Lutosławski's 3rd symphony.

I hope you can join us at St John's Smith Square for this first concert of an exciting new season.

Russell Keable
Music Director
