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 Milton Court on Tuesday 19 May 2015 for a concert featuring the world première of Seán Doherty's Hive Mind, commissioned by Making Music, Stravinsky's piano concerto with soloist Alasdair Beatson, and Beethoven's symphony no.7.

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

Russell Keable
Music Director
