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.

Our next event is the 16th in our series of Sponsored Plays for charity on Sunday 29 April in the Atrium at Westfield London, this time in aid of War Child and the Kensington & Chelsea Foundation. For full details, go to our dedicated Sponsored Play page.

For our next concert we are looking forward to bringing you a complete concert performance of Puccini’s opera La Bohème at St John’s Smith Square on Monday 21 May.

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

Russell Keable
Music Director
