Join us for our 34th Season!

Bringing Back the Music! 
Our Musicians are Ready to Play for You!

We are creating an alternative 2020-21 Season in keeping with the spirit of KCCO while keeping our patrons safe and healthy. We currently have tentative dates for the regular concert season, but are working to bring music back to you with some exciting outdoor performances!

Our 34th Season will include four great concerts including our special Valentine event!

Join us as we celebrate KCCO favorites from the Baroque and Classical eras plus several beautiful new and never performed “discoveries.”  New and current arts partners, amazing soloists and guest performers can’t wait to perform!
