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.
The second concert of KSO's 59th season is in memory of our founder and conductor for the first quarter of a century, Leslie Head. On Tuesday 25 November at St John's Smith Square we perform Sibelius's Symphony no.5 and Walton's Variations on a Theme of Hindemith along with Stephen Montague's From the Ether, the world première of a commission to celebrate the 300th anniversary of St John's. For three of Vaughan Williams's Songs of Travel we are joined by bass soloist Sir John Tomlinson.
I hope you can join us at St John's Smith Square as we continue our exciting season of concerts.
