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.
For our next concert KSO returns to St John's Smith Square for a concert of music by English composers with guest conductor Jacques Cohen. We open with Malcolm Arnold's fantastical overture Tam o' Shanter, followed by the atmospheric Four Sea Interludes and Passacaglia from Britten's Peter Grimes. The concert concludes with Walton's dramatic first symphony.
I hope you can join the orchestra on Saturday 15 March at St John's Smith Square.
