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 Monday 27 June for the final concert of our 60th season, with Walton's virtuosic overture Scapino, Elgar's symphonic portrayal of Shakespeare's Falstaff and Britten's brilliant and lyrical violin concerto with soloist Fenella Humphreys.

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

Russell Keable
Music Director
