The KSO is a leader in this region in so many irreplaceable ways, from our education programs that reach over 20,000 children each year to our Family, Masterworks, Pops and Chamber series concerts that entertain and enrich more than 200,000 people annually.

KSO musicians spend approximately 80% of their time in outreach endeavors on behalf of the Symphony. The costs involved in sending these professional musicians into area classrooms and hospitals are covered solely through grants and contributions. Unfortunately the demand for these programs far exceeds our ability to fully provide them. With your help, we can continue to carry on our mission.
