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.
For our next concert we bring you Sibelius's restrained and subtle Sixth Symphony, which has the most beautiful opening of all his works. Delius asks us to imagine gazing out to sea whilst sitting on the heather of the Yorkshire moors in his Song Of Summer, whilst Bridge depicts The Sea in all its different moods. Both are stunning pieces of evocative nature poetry.
I hope you can join us on Tuesday 3 July for the final concert of our 62nd season.
