Welcome to KSO

About Kensington Symphony Orchestra

During 60 years 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 by today’s leading composers are hallmarks of KSO’s repertoire, performed with a skill and panache that has garnered praise from all quarters.

Kensington Symphony Orchestra is delighted to welcome back guest conductor Michael Seal for the fourth concert in the orchestra’s 2017/18 season, at St John's Smith Square on Saturday 10 March. Bruckner's last completed symphony, with the richness of its orchestral sound and the grandeur of its themes, is a monumental masterpiece on the scale of a cathedral or a mountain range.

I hope you can join us as we continue our exciting 62nd season of concerts.
