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 Tuesday 17 May to continue our 60th season with the orchestral suite from Janáček's opera From The House Of The Dead, Martinů's 5th symphony, and Judith Weir's Natural History, a setting of four Taoist texts for soprano and orchestra with soloist Donna Lennard.

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

Russell Keable
Music Director
