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 returns to St John's Smith Square on Monday 29 June 2015 for a concert of French music beginning with Dukas La Péri fanfare and featuring Chabrier's España, Ibert's La ballade de la géôle de Reading, and Roussel's complete ballet Bacchus et Ariane.

I hope you can join us as we complete our exciting 59th season of concerts.

Music Director
