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 Cadogan Hall on Monday 23 January to continue our 61st season, in which we contrast one of Stravinsky's most approachable ballet scores, Scènes de ballet, written for a Broadway review, with the grandeur of Bruckner's popular fourth symphony, with its Romantically evocative horn calls.

I hope you can join us as we continue our exciting season of concerts.

Russell Keable
Music Director
