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 St John's Smith Square on Saturday 12 March to continue our 60th season with the Symphonic Suite from Britten's Gloriana and Shostakovich's 10th symphony with guest conductor Michael Seal.

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

Russell Keable
Music Director
