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 makes a return to Cadogan Hall on Monday 25 January 2016 to continue our 60th season: EJ Moeran's Serenade, Ravel's G major Piano Concerto with YCAT soloist Alexander Ullman, and Vaughan Williams's Symphony no.5.

I hope you can join us for our anniversary season of concerts.

Russell Keable
Music Director
