Join us for our 33rd Season!

Creating Musical Magic
Three decades as KC’s professional chamber orchestra –
over three centuries of music ... 

Each concert this season features signature Baroque and Classical period repertoire paired thematically with modern or contemporary music composed for chamber orchestra, and highlights contemporary women and regional composers, as well as tracing the background and musical landscape that led to the revolutionary compositional work of Beethoven whose 250th anniversary is celebrated worldwide in 2020.
